No.  Mailman is not a Local Delivery Agent.  Only the Cyrus LDA can 
put mail into the Cyrus mailboxes.  You would configure postfix to 
deliver mail for Mailman directly to Mailman, Mailman would then 
operate on it and then hand that back to postfix.  After that, 
postfix would transmit the mail to external recipients (if 
appropriate), hand off the mail to the Cyrus LDA to deliver mail for 
local recipients, etc....

There is no such thing as a "postfix mailbox".

Bingo.  Mailman does not do all that other stuff.  It only does the 
stuff it needs to do internally, then depends on other programs to 
handle the other things.

Trend Micro has announced that they will cancel the stop.mail-abuse.org
mail forwarding service as of 15 November 2006.  If you have an old
e-mail account for me at this domain, please make sure you correct that
with the current address.
