Postfix mailbox_transport


I have a classic Web-cyradm setup (Postfix 2.0.18 - MySQL - Cyrus) running on a server with Fedora Core 2.
I want the ability to send emails to the local unix account mailboxes instead deliver mail to cyrus through mailbox_transport.
Any help would be really appreciated!

just set "mailbox_transport =" and set the mailbox_command instead if you wish to go through procmail instead. Alternatively to go totally directly to the mailbox, just remove both (AFAIK)
