courier IMAP misconfiguration


I set everything up properly, SM seems to be accessible through my browser fine, PHP and PostFix seem to be working too, but well i cant login. I know that im missing something, but I need some guidance, heres what i get:


ERROR


Error connecting to IMAP server: localhost.
111 : Connection refused



(try it yourself at http://leniu.sytes.net/sm/ )
Something is wrong with my mysql, but i dont think that's it.
I appreciate all the help.

By the way all comments on SM and postfix are welcome.

I am running PHP 4.3.4, SM 1.4.2, Postfix 2.0, and apache 1.3.x

111 is indeed an error number, connection refused in particular.
I tried to connect to your IMAP service on leniu.sytes.net:
$ telnet leniu.sytes.net 143
Trying 24.168.88.166...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
So check your firewall, it needs to allow incoming connections on port 143 obviously.

Well clearly from your first post, you seem to not be running imap which is required for SquirrelMail. Have you installed or started IMAP? And if this is the server your connecting to, it doesn't matter if your blocking imap and port 143 from the outside world, just as long as you don't block your localhost which I doubt when running squirrelmail with imapd
