Lots of configuration is necessary for cyrus-imapd. Dovecot much easier.
The payoff is cyrus is a high performance monster. Dovecot is simple

Cyrus has a mail list and web site and I strongly suggest that you use
those resources for help. Cyrus uses cyrus-sasl for authentication which
also must be configured.
