The only validation that Cyrus does is make sure that the message is RFC
2822 compliant.  You can't turn it off, and you shouldn't have to.

You're trying to bite off too much at one time.  The first thing that I
would do is make sure that lmtpd will accept and deliver a message.  If
lmtpd is listening on a TCP port, telnet to it.  If its listening on a
UNIX domain socket, login as the cyrus user and run 'deliver -l'
(lowercase 'L').  Then:

mail from:<foo>
rcpt to:<bar>
subject: lmtpd test

body text

This should put a message into bar's INBOX (assuming that you don't have
a sieve script which changes the disposition).  If this works, then your
problem is outside of lmtpd.
