You based your questions on wrong assumptions, no wonder you ended up empty-handed. Cyrus has a proprietary storage system, so you need to configure Squirrelmail to connect to Cyrus.

If you have mail in /var/spool/mail you have probably not configured Postfix to deliver mails to Cyrus. I won't even ask if you have logged in to cyradm and created the neccessary mailboxes for Cyrus or how Cyrus is authenticating its clients.

Can you log into Cyrus using an imap client? If not, fix that first. You need a working imap server to get Squirrelmail to work.

postfix
procmail
cyrus master server
popper

Forget procmail and qpopper for the moment and try to get a working mail system up first. Try to configure it through yast, it will probably save you a lot of work.
