    Did you give restarting it a try in WHM?

    Restart Services/IMAP Server

    Go on, have a guess
    imap on cPanel actually runs through xinetd. You could try restarting xinetd whilest monitoring the /var/log/messages file and look for errors. To restart xinetd:

    /etc/init.d/xinetd restart

    The file xinetd uses should be /etc/xinet.d/cpimap and contain:
    Code:
    # default: off
    # description: imapd
    service imap
    {
            socket_type             = stream
            wait                    = no
            user                    = root
            server                  = /usr/sbin/imapd
            disable                 = no
    }
    
    Make sure that in your file disable isn't set to yes.

    Lastly, you haven't installed a firewall recently have you and forgotten to open port 143?

    You can check whether imap is actually running on the server with:

    netstat -lpn | grep 143
