Question Postfix-MySQL-Courier IMAP - Permission denied


I'm trying to setup my e-mail server with the following components: Postfix + MySQL + Courier IMAP.
I'll be managing virtual accounts and I use MySQL for authentication. When I try to connect to my mailbox (Maildir) using IMAP I get the following error in the client:
IMAP : Server closed connection

In the syslog this is what I see:
imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:xx.xx.xx.xx]
imapd: /usr/local/courier/bin/imapd: Permission denied

The userid/pw combination is good, becuase if I try it with an invalid combination I get a different error. What kind of permission is denied? Access to imapd? Access to the virtual mailboxes? I'm running /etc/rc.d/init.d/imapd as root, and the ownership of the virtual domain directory (/var/spool/postfix/virtual/ is postfix.postdrop with chmod 700.

Any help would be much appreciated!
Thank you!
