    I've been trying to setup some email accounts using cpanel. All the settings looked correct, but webmail kept throwing up imap errors and Outlook would never verify the username/password.

    I tried restarting imap and got: imap has failed, please contact the sysadmin (result was "authdaemond is not running").

    I tried both
    /scripts/restartsrv_imap
    and
    /scripts/restartsrv_courier
    and got
    touch: cannot touch `/var/run/restartsrv_imap.lock': Permission denied

    Where should I go from here?

    Warning: I'm a newb.

    I have the same problem.

    Restarting doesn't help.

    One of our tech deleted /var/spool/authdaemon folder acidentally.
    It was the problem. We recreated the folder, set correct permissions and resatarted IMAP.

    It fixed the problem.
