Have you started the imap service?
Many distros uses xinetd to start imap services, go to your /etc/xinetd.d and
check the file imap (or imaps if you want to use the more secure one).
Teh file usually has a row that looks something like this:
disable = yes
Cahnge that row to
disable = no
and restart xinetd
In Redhat and clones of it, there is a quite good tool, from SunOS if I
remeber ti right, that is called chkconfig, it is used to change which
services are run at which init level and it does handle xinetd services too.
For more info: man chkconfig
