i've read this allready and i "know" this. but for me it does not work. i've

localhost.localdomain> lam shared.test at
anyone lrswipcda

localhost.localdomain> lam shared.test at
matthias at lrswipda
anyone p

both do not work for me. where the second one is no option for large setups.

as said. postfix is not the problem. cyrus is. cyrus is unable to deliver
the mail. when i send a mail i get a bounce with:

<test at>: service unavailable. Command output: Failed to set
    recipient: Mailbox unknown.  Either there is no mailbox associated with
    this name or you do not have authorization to see it. 5.1.1 User
    unknown, code 550

this message is generetated by kolabfilter when it tries to connect to cyrus
by lmtp in order to deliver the mail finaly.

can any one pleas point me to a solution ?
