So does the imap server know the domain name? How does it figure it out? Does 
it know to strip domain names because you configured the unix passwd backend?
If it uses the domainname command to figure out the domainname, you may have 
it set on the working server, yet not on the jail.
Any differences related to domains in /etc/rc.conf and /etc/resolv.conf that 
might shed some light?
I'm sorry I can't be of more Cyrus specific help.
