Check this line:

# Log all the mail messages in one place.
mail.*                                                -/var/log/maillog


# Log all the mail messages in one place.                                             -/var/log/imapd.log

Unfortunately, you'll probably end up with your MTA (sendmail, postfix, 
whatever RHEL uses) in the same file.  If they compiled Cyrus to use the 
MAIL facility instead of LOCAL6 as default, then there isn't much you can 
do about it.
