http://people.debian.org/~hmh/ has a complete set of cyrus and postfix
packages backported from sid to woody. I use them on one of my personal
boxes, and they work just fine. It's a postfix + cyrus + jawmail + mysql +
spamassassin + amavis setup, also for a small amount of users. We also used
it at the ISP I work for for a small mailserver for one of our customers,
and it's also working ok.
Hope this helps,
