I'm reordering, to make this easier to follow:

Postfix is clearly not delivering a message to cyrus.test at,
based on your output, which means cyrus isn't getting it.

Are you using fetchmail to deliver these messages? If not, what is the smtp
client in this scenario?

Yes, that's what I was looking for instead of cyrus.conf.
