    Here is what I get when accessing Squirrel or Horde:
    ERROR
    Error connecting to IMAP server: localhost.
    111 : Connection refused
    Go to the login page

    Also, I can't startup the Imap service. Does IMAP "need" to run in order to use the webmail clients?

    Do the following:
    vi /etc/xinetd.d/imap
    It should look like this:

    Code:
    # Converted by inetdconvert
    service imap
    {
    socket_type = stream
    protocol = tcp
    wait = no
    user = root
    server = /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/imapd
    disable = no
    Restart IMAP via the WHM and should work.

    If that doesn' work, double check and make sure the entries in:

    /etc/hosts.deny
    and
    /etc/hosts.allow

    are correct and nothing block IMAPD from accessing 127.1.1..0

    Hope this helps!

    Yes. Cpanel appears to have done something again that breaks it. In the process list, we now see 30-40 imap processes spawned.

    Anyone knows what?

    The servers are on 10.4 C154 and automatic updates is disabled.
