    Winston, I think you aren't grasping the concept of what is being
    done here or if you have then you have something configured I don't
    have.

    You're e-mail implies you have fixed the libsasl2.2.dylib/libsql.so
    issue, added mysql to postfix and have virtual users (users who do
    not have local accounts) so I'd like the following files form you
    /etc/imapd.conf
    /etc/cyrus.conf
    /etc/postfix (the entire folder)
    /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf

    any other configuration file related to making it work.
