  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
