    Hello everyone, I am extremely new at this... but I've searched the boards and I really didn't see anything that solved my problem.

    In WHM, when I attempt to restart IMAP I get the following error:
    Jan 9 15:24:07 dolphins xinetd[4632]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 9 16:40:22 dolphins xinetd[868]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 12:37:50 dolphins xinetd[16700]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 13:48:19 dolphins xinetd[19344]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 15:12:09 dolphins xinetd[23226]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 15:38:40 dolphins xinetd[24619]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 16:05:56 dolphins xinetd[25966]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 18:30:13 dolphins xinetd[30962]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 21:34:33 dolphins xinetd[3045]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 21:43:37 dolphins xinetd[3383]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 21:44:37 dolphins xinetd[3504]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 21:49:05 dolphins xinetd[3504]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] Jan 11 21:49:18 dolphins xinetd[3739]: Server imapd is not executable [line=8] imap has failed, please contact the sysadmin.


    I have already reinstalled IMAP and I have restarted /etc/rc.d/init.d/portsentry

    Also, I hope this is the problem that is causing me not to receive emails. For example, I can send email from webmaster@finheaven.com, however, I can not receive email. When I go to &Manage Mail Queue& I see all my mail that I'm supposed to receive... if I click &deliver now& I also get this message:

    Message 18XY72-0000tO-00 is not frozen
    delivering message 18XY72-0000tO-00
    LOG: 0 MAIN
    == webmaster@finheaven.com T=virtual_sa_userdelivery defer (32): Broken pipe: error while writing to /home/fhco/mail/finheaven.com/webmaster/inbox
    Return to Mail Queue

    For that problem, I have also ran /scripts/mailperm... but again... no luck.

    Anyways, if anyone could PLEASE help me out, I'll really really appreciate it.

    Again, thank you for your time and energy...

    Sincerely,
    Andrew Tatum

    EDIT: Also, here are the versions:
    WHM 5.3.0
    Cpanel 5.3.0-R117

    Is imap working on any other accounts on the server? Maybe you just need to click on the mail troubleshooter option in the root WHM for that email addy.

    No other email address is working, and when I try the mail trouble shooter it simply tells me...

    &Sorry, I couldn't find a problem.. maybe I just don't know about
    the problem you are having or there is no problem&

    Thanks for your assistance, I really appreciate it.

    That's because that's not the main file. If you want to remove it completly then you also need to remove /etc/chkserv.d/imap
    then restart chkservd daemon.

    rpm -e --nodeps imap
    rpm -e ---nodeps imap-devel
    /scripts/installrpm imap
    /scripts/installrpm imap-devel
    cp /usr/local/cpanel/bin/cpimap /usr/sbin/imapd

    check the /etc/xinetd.d/cpimap file (some times it's named imap or imapd) and make sure disable = no

    then /etc/init.d/xinetd restart


    This shoudl make imap work.

    Based on the the first post, I see it keeps repeating:

    "Server imapd is not executable"

    Have any of you checked to see if the imapd file has execute privileges? If it doesn't, chmod it and then see what happens.

    I was able to fix mine from getting that error message by deleting the mail queue, however I do not know if that fixed my clients email problem.
