Arrow How to get imap running with squirrelmail

I just installed squirrelmail but it has some problems connecting to the imap server. The current settings I have in the config file in SM for imap are localhost on port 143. I'm runnig Rh 8 with imap-2001a-15. I am missing something very simple in the configuration obviously but I cant find out what.
Can anyone help me?

try this if imap is installed

chkconfig imap on

check to see if it's running

netstat -l | grep imap
tcp 0 0 *:imap *:* LISTEN

an imap script is needed.

cat /etc/xinetd.d/imap
# default: off
# description: The IMAP service allows remote users to access their mail using \
# an IMAP client such as Mutt, Pine, fetchmail, or Netscape \
# Communicator.
service imap
disable = no
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/imapd
log_on_success += HOST DURATION
log_on_failure += HOST
