    Hi
    Yesterday i got mail from server and it says:

    imap failed @ Mon May 23 05:21:19 2011. A restart was attempted automagically.
    Service Check Method: [check command]

    Cmd Service Check Raw Output: dovecot is not running


    And today i figured out that my smtp is not working. pop server is fine i am able to receive mail but cannot send.
    When test account over outlook 2007 it says: outlook can not connect your smtp server.

    Any suggestion will consider highly appreciation.

    Can you try to send via webmail for the same email client to see if that returns a different error message? Preferably Roundcube email client to test for sending. After you try to send using Roundcube, then check the roundcube error log:

    Code:
    tail -f /var/cpanel/roundcube/log/errors
    Also, please check if exim and dovecot are running:

    Code:
    ps aux | grep exim
    ps aux | grep dovecot
