No actually the problem is cyrus-imapd: cyrus-imapd expects all users to use
imap (or pop3) to access their E-Mail. It does not allow for other E-Mail
methodologies, including using local UNIX utilies (eg mail or pine or mh or
other tools like QWK).

I have uninstalled cyrus-imapd and installed dovecot instead.  This actually 
works.  dovecot is even happy to use a Let's Encrypt cert for SSL.
