Are you sure, authentication works well? usually it's an  
authentication problem. You can communicate with lmtpd without  
authenticating, but you won't see the mailboxes...

I'd use lmtpd -a in cyrus.conf to test whether it's an authentication  
problem. You surely shouldn't leave that setting (preauth  
connection), but for debugging, it may be useful.
