Why don't you just use dovecot? Cyrus-IMAPd is complex and not that easy
to administer. It is far from trivial.

Anyway, as long as you don't configure your Postfix properly to deliver
to Cyrus-IMAPd you will never see it handling the incoming mail. Saying
that you use "Postfix/mbox" shows that you don't know anything about
Cyrus-IMAPd and how it interacts with the MTA. So please start with
reading the documentation. The homepage is

http://asg.web.cmu.edu/cyrus/imapd/

As long as you don't know about the cyrus administrative account and how
Cyrus-IMAPd uses authentification and very important how it communicates
with the MTA you will have no success. For the last point I wrote a
bugzilla RFA which contains the important setup steps on the Postfix
side:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=122910

And google has a lot of documents if you search for "Cyrus-imap
Postfix", i.e.

http://doc.trustix.org/cgi-bin/trustixdoc.cgi?Postfix_And_CyrusIMAP

Again, better use dovecot if you really have to run your own MTA/IMAP
mail server.
