It looks like you didn't quite follow the INSTALL file.
At point 13 there is reference to doc/guides/ directory for
details about using Cyrus for local delivery.
Perhaps you missed something ?
(scheduler.conf needs modification, and sm.conf needs to
have correct paths.)

The system things its own canonic name is www.rats-ms.de
This detail is controlled by 'mail.conf' file, earlier
expected to be found at /etc/mail.conf, lattest versions
expect to find it from $MAILVAR/mail.conf
Alternatively you rewrote rats-ms.de like www.rats-ms.de
by saying so at your $MAILVAR/db/localnames
