lmtp 2003/tcp # Cyrus LMTP
Exim requires a remote transport to do a callback, so you need to connect to a port, not a socket.
cyrus_lmtp: driver = smtp protocol = lmtp hosts = your.host.name allow_localhost
In /etc/cyrus.conf, uncomment the lmtp line, and change the command line from lmtpd to lmtpd -a. Copy that line, and bind it to your.host.name as well.
WARNING: this means anyone who can connect to your machine on 2003/tcp can deliver it mail. Firewall it.
Test with exim4 -bhc ip.ad.re.ss.
You cannot put hosts = localhost, else you will get:
>>> accept: condition test deferred 451 Could not complete recipient verify callout LOG: H=(fosdf) [220.127.116.11] F=<foosg@dsgsg> temporarily rejected RCPT email@example.com: Could not complete recipient verify callout
Note that you can't put spaces after MAIL FROM:, and you need <>s:

If you see:
RCPT TO:<UserWithCaps@some.domain.com> 550-Mailbox unknown. Either there is no mailbox associated with this 550-name or you do not have authorization to see it. 550 5.1.1 User unknown
but firstname.lastname@example.org works fine, you need to set
in your imapd.conf and restart cyrus. That is, assuming you don't want case sensitivity on your user mailboxes (and who would?).
