That is where incoming messages handled by lmtpd are stored after they are 
received from the network (or unix socket if using 'deliver') and before 
they are put in the destination mailbox(es).

If that directory is filling up, then I would suspect you are having 
trouble delivering mail to a particular mailbox/user.  If they are old or 
useless, then you can safely delete the files in that directory while 
cyrus is stopped.
