IMAP Failing Somebody help me

i am having a problem with imap failing
possible due to a change in the xinitd.conf file and in the /etc/init.d/services file i was trying to get something to work from a post then noticed it made the imap fail. i changed the files back to what they were and still having the problem does someone have a solution or a copy of these 2 files that i could possibly try to get to work

this is the error im getting in the messages file

looks like you've use a DOS/Windows editor to change the config? That ^M usually means a windows end of line character. Try running the program dos2unix on those files, then restart the services.

i.e. dos2unix /path/to/file

Hope that helps,
