I installed Squirrel-1.4.2 on my RH9.0 Server running Apache-2.x and php4.3.3. With imap-2002e running.

Everytime I logged in, the system provides the following error:

Unknown user or password incorrect.

I can however, collect and send messages using Sendmail using the same account. I tried logging in a couple of times and Im sure my password is correctly inputed.

this is my /etc/xinetd.d/imap config

service imap
disable = no
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/imapd
only_from =
no_access =
instances = 30
log_on_success += DURATION HOST
log_of_failure += HOST
nice = -2
bind =

/etc/hosts.allow config:

imapd : : allow
imapd : ALL : deny

What could be the problem?
