You need to have an active IMAP service. On FC3 this is provided by the "Dovecot" software.

Check /usr/share/doc/dovecot-0.99.13/examples/ - you need to run this if your IMAP service will be accessed from anywhere other than the system itself.

To check what network services are running:

netstat -tl

To start dovecot:

/sbin/service dovecot start (as root)

To make dovecot start on every boot:

/sbin/chkconfig --level 345 dovecot on (as root)
