For compiling Cyrus IMAPD see the sections cyrus-sasl-2.1.14 and cyrus-imapd-2.1.14 in COMPILE-MYLINUX.

The configuration file /etc/cyrus.conf creates the connection to sendmail. It corresponds to the provided file master/conf/normal.conf, except the path to the lmtp socket (see also the patch sendmail-cyrus.patch in sendmail).

The file imapd.conf configures the paths to the Cyrus configuration and mail databases, the method of authentication (saslauthd, as with sendmail), the MTA sendmail and the paths to the SSL certificates.

The patch cyrus-services.patch adds the TCP protocolls used by Cyrus to the file /etc/services. By the way on this occasion the name of the service "swat" is also added (see SWAT).
