nope, cyrus stores it's mail in a protected area of the system,
only the mail system can read it. This is mostly to facilitate locking,
and so that the indexes can be updated automatically. If you were to
access the files directly the indexes wouldn't know to update(you can
rebuild the indexes but that again needs to run as the mail user).

/var/spool/mail isn't used at all as above. not sure about procmail,
never used it to filter. Though cyrus can work with procmail, not
sure what the limits of the functionality are(if any).
