solaris 11.1 and imap package


I am new with solaris and trying to get to work some services on it. Apache works fine, sendmail I also configured successfully. But pop3 and imap I cannot get to work.

I find several how-to about converting it from inetd service but it seems that I don't have the package for imap installed on the system.

I tried:
pkg search imap
pkg search pop3

with no (usable) result. So I tried to download the package (imap) from some web location with no success.

Is it possible that Solaris do not have imap application in the standard repository?
Do I need to use third-party application for this?

Thanks for your suggestions
