Building dependency tree... Done
courier-imap-ssl is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0B of archives.
After unpacking 0B of additional disk space will be used.

Setting up courier-imap-ssl (4.1.1.20060828-5) ...
ERR: config file missing

invoke-rc.d: initscript courier-imap-ssl, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing courier-imap-ssl (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
dpkg --purge | remove doesn't work either

Thanks for helping.
Luke.

Hi consur,
It seems that dpkg is not finding some files it needs and, due to this, it doesn't finishes the remove/install process. Try creating dummy configuration files, like
Code:
touch /etc/courier/imapd-ssl /etc/courier/imapd.cnf /etc/courier/imapd.pem /etc/init.d/courier-imap-ssl
