    The most common reason i've come accross for this is that the service are not set to start at boot up. If you have a look through ntsysv or make the appropriate changes via chkconfig, you should be sorted.

    The red dot doesn't go away untill the next time chkservd does a run which i believe is every 9 minutes.

    As far as xinitd, get your distributor to have a look, its probably a simple fubared fix.

    i solved it a different way

    In my case, I had to alter the /etc/xinetd.d/imap file to show the full path of imap; see below. I do find it curious that my imapd was in such a wierd directory and not /sbin or /usr/sbin or more normal location. Anyone care to comment? At least they could have put a symlink in the usual place in the $PATH. What does upcp do in the example you provide?

    Code:
    service imap
    {
            socket_type             = stream
            protocol                = tcp
            wait                    = no
            user                    = root
            server                  = /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/imapd
            disable                 = no
    }

    I found this thread searching for the same. Running "/scripts/upcp --force" worked for me. Thanks azrael :D
