email error after changing POP3 to IMAP


Im trying to use squirrelmail but when logging in I get the error:
ERROR : Connection dropped by imap-server.
ok so I go into my logs where I see this

Oct 18 15:15:26 www pop3d[2790]: IOERROR: opening /var/lib/imap/mailboxes.db: Permission denied
Oct 18 15:15:26 www pop3d[2790]: DBERROR: opening /var/lib/imap/mailboxes.db: cyrusdb error
Oct 18 15:15:26 www pop3d[2796]: DBERROR: reading /var/lib/imap/db/skipstamp, assuming the worst: Permission denied


I can only assume that ?something? is still trying to use pop3 to instead of IMAP. Im also using postfix and promail.

I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

The GNUbie

Did you configure Squirrelmail to connect only to IMAP and not POP3?
