I haven't used Cyrus yet, but it looks to me like a permissions problem,
possibly with your client, as it would be opening a folder to put the
What user are you running as?
What directory is the mail being put in?
What are the permissions on your home directory?
Do you have another mail client open at the same time?
If it's actually Cyrus having the error, check the permissions on the
mail folder, which might be /var/mail or /var/spool/mail, and
specifically on the file matching your username in that directory.
Hope this helps.
