Frankly, I am a bit astonished about that statement (Cyrus-IMAPd working
without any configuration steps). I explain that to me that you so far
didn't try to receive email from outside.
Be aware that Sendmail from default setup - what you pasted as your
sendmail.mc - will not hand over any incoming mail to Cyrus-IMAPd. This
is not because you would have made a setup mistake, but because you so
far didn't configure both to interact. Though you can contact your
IMAP/POP3 server with your mail client it is a dumb thing so far. Even
your mail client should tell you that there is no mailbox for the user
you are logging in with: because with Cyrus-IMAPd the administrator
(user cyrus) has to create each top-level mailbox (given you didn't
configure and enable the autocreate feature).
