It is not cyrus' job to implement a mail list, cyrus acts as a mail store once
mail has been delivered. That mail may have come from a mail list or been sent
from an individual.

To implement a mail list you need to get the MTA (sendmail) to recognise the address
as that of a list and pass it to appropriate mail list software, mailman is what I
use and it works well; others like majordomo.
