    I've had a IMAP failure for the past week and I can't seem to figure out whats the problem..

    root@host1 [/]# find / -name imap
    /home/cpapachebuild/buildapache/php-4.3.3/ext/imap
    /var/run/chkservd/imap
    /etc/xinetd.d/imap
    /etc/pam.d/imap
    /etc/chkserv.d/imap
    /usr/share/doc/nss_ldap-189/pam.d/imap
    /usr/include/imap
    /usr/local/cpanel/etc/imap

    I know that /etc/xinetd.d/imap is the script for it
    and that shows

    service imap
    {
    socket_type = stream
    wait = no
    user = root
    server = /usr/sbin/imapd
    log_on_success += HOST DURATION
    log_on_failure += HOST
    disable = no
    }

    ....................................
    when I try to start the service within cpanel I get

    Waiting for imap to restart.... . . . . . . . . . . finished.

    imap status

    imap has failed, please contact the sysadmin.

    .....................................

    Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated..
    If not I'm going to just remove all of imap stuff and do

    /scripts/upcp ------and mybe that might work ??

    Thanks Guys..

    Check whether the /etc/hosts. deny file contains anything that denys all imap . If there is something then remove it and restart IMAP

    I figured it all out.. I did alot so its hard to remember what really fixed the problem but what you listed wasn't the problem. I do think I fixed it because I changed the direct path for the imapd server then restarted imap and that didn't work but when I restarted exintd then it did work. dunno why but it did.

    Please tell me what you did I have been attempting since 13 hours ago go when I upgraded my server from red hat 7.3 to 9 HELL of a job.
    Now I know why they cal 9 a HELL and it is a hell.

    WHM 9.1.0 cPanel 9.1.0-S73
    RedHat 9 - WHM X v2.1.2
    dual xeon everything is fine except this imap thing!

    I get this:
    # find / -name imap
    find: /proc/24419/fd: No such file or directory
    /var/run/chkservd/imap
    /etc/pam.d/imap
    /root/installd/buildapache/php-4.3.1/ext/imap
    /usr/share/doc/nss_ldap-202/pam.d/imap
    /usr/include/imap
    /usr/local/cpanel/etc/imap
    /home/admin/installd/buildapache/php-4.3.3/ext/imap
    /home/cpapachebuild/buildapache/php-4.3.4/ext/imap
