    Error connecting to IMAP server

    Hi all,
    I install postfix, dovecot and squirrelmail in my ubuntu.
    when I login squirrelmail , I saw this message.
    "Error connecting to IMAP server: localhost.
    111 : Connection refused"

    My /var/log/mail.log is
    May 15 14:20:33 tkfsh postfix/master[8097]: terminating on signal 15
    May 15 14:20:34 tkfsh postfix/master[8491]: daemon started -- version 2.9.6, configuration /etc/postfix

    How can I solved this problem?
    Thanks,

    Why are you using port 111? IMAP listens on 143. Perhaps there is a typo in the SquirrelMail configuration file?

    There could be a typo in the configuration file for dovecot. Some information on setting it up can be found here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Dovecot
