111 is sunrpc aka portmapper, apps connect to portmapper and portmapper tells them what port to connect to.
Start the portmap service (/etc/init.d/portmap start) and see what happens.

There is a port 0 actually, but back to your problem.
I think you've got a configuration error, go to the squirrelmail dir and typ ./configure, the check the IMAP port&server settings.

if u cant get squirrel mail to work, u can always give IMP a go.

http://www.horde.org

install horde, configure it, install IMP, configure it and you're done. the README's or whatever tell you everything you need to do to get it working.

example loging screens:

mine https://www.gigahurts.net/horde/imp
Georgia Tech: https://webmail.mail.gatech.edu

no portmapper needed, just apache, php, a mail server running on port 25 and imap on port 143 (or imaps on port 993)

I already ran the ./configure program, and it is set for IMAP on port 143. As for IMP I might have to check that out if errors continue.

Thanks

The only thing I can think about now is this:
Look at /etc/services and check if IMAP4 is port 143.
If that isn't it I cannot help you further, sorry.

Hey Robert, I have decided to give IMP a go. I was curious if you could give me an example of a configuration file. So I can have a reference. I know server settings will be different.

Thanks
