That's a very complex setup and not to tell in a few words...

Better search with google for postfix +cyrus (+smtpauth)

e.g. read http://postfix.state-of-mind.de/patrick.koetter/smtpauth/
(this is a good article but with smtp-auth - you can leave "smtpauth"
out if you don't want this, but this article describes how to setup
your needs!)

There is some help in /usr/share/doc/packages/cyrus. There is
_no_help_ within yast - afaik this is not supported there!

Other help you get by suscribing to postfix users list (sign-up for a
few days and all your questions will be answered because of the mass
of questions and answers there! If you found your answer unsuscribe
because you will get alot 'o' mails there!).
