You need to create the inboxes on the IMAP server for each user with cyradm
using an administrative user as specified in /usr/local/etc/imapd.conf.

Did you create an administrator user for cyrus-imapd in your passwd file?
Did you add that admin user to the /usr/local/etc/imapd.conf:
# The list of userids with administrative rights.  Separate each userid
# with a space.  We recommend that administrator userids be separate from
# standard userids.  Sites using Kerberos authentication may use separate
# "admin" instances.
admins: cyadmin

After you do this, then you login as the administrator to create the

$ cyradm -u cyadmin localhost
Please enter your password:
localhost> cm user.bfoz
localhost> sam user.bfoz cyadmin d

NOTE: always give the admin user the delete (d) rights to a mailbox so that
he can remove the mailbox when necessary.

You have no defered / error message in the sendmail log.

I believe the cyrus-imap server doesn't even use this file.
