    imap server was up right after I install Cpanel and WHM (all newest on Redhat 8. box), but it's been down very soon.
    Please give me some guilines to where to look into.
    When I restart it, this is what I got:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Attempting to restart imap
    Waiting for imap to restart.... . . . . . . . . . . finished.

    imap status xinetd (pid 16498) is running...

    configuration file for imap

    Hello,

    The configuration file for Imap in the server is /etc/xinetd.d/imap. First check out the path for imap in the server by the command

    whereis imap

    Then you need to edit the file /etc/xinetd.d/imap and give this path for the entry 'server' in it.

    now restart xinetd by the commands

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd stop

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd start

    This should make the imap server work fine.

    Regards
    Reeshma. :)

    service imap
    {
    socket_type = stream
    protocol = tcp
    wait = no
    user = root
    server = imapd
    disable = no
    }


    This is what is in my imap how should the path look in here?

    It should look like this:
    service imap
    {
    socket_type = stream
    wait = no
    user = root
    log_on_success += USERID
    log_on_failure += USERID
    server = /usr/sbin/imapd
    disable = no
    }
