cyrus does not send email (in the sence of sending via smtp). imap and pop is 
implemented via unencrypted (110 and 143), vie TLS (995 and 993) and afaik 
via starttls (via 110 and 143) connections. With a little patch (at least in 
the 2.0.16 version) you can enable the imap server to accept only valid and 
trusted certificates from the client via the ssl encrypted line.
