Thanks a lot to everyone for your answers, I'll do a complete reply, I 
think it's better :

Yes, you're right... BTW I never understood why there is a 
/etc/imapd.conf and a /etc/cyrus.conf...

What should I do now that I have the logs ?

Ok great, for me it was /var/lib/imap/log/username, now the directory 
gets filled by cyrus (without even restarting it)

You mean to see what's happening or as a solution ?
