    I am currently using Dovecot with my ispconfig. when I first switched to Dovecot all I had to do was disable ipop3 and imap for xinted and Dovecot to work side by side. Now after an Ispconfig upgrade to version 2.2.3 I have to stop xinetd:

    /etc/init.d/xinetd stop
    And start Dovecot after startup since the system boots with xinetd and Dovecot doesn't start up since ipop3s and imaps is still running on xinetd.

    /etc/init.d/dovecot start
    /etc/init.d/postfix restart
    So my questions are: Do I disable imaps and ipop3s from xinetd so Dovecot can run side by side with xinetd? How will I set it up so that Dovecot start up automatically at boot? Or will it be safe to uninstall xinetd all together?

    No need to uninstall xinetd, you just need to change the system startup links and the xinetd configuration. Which distribution do you use?

    Please run

    chkconfig imap off
    chkconfig imaps off
    chkconfig ipop3 off
    chkconfig pop3s off
    chkconfig --levels 235 dovecot on
    That should fix your problem.

    Thanks Falko! Looked for ISPConfig at the OSCON in Portland last month and was sad not to see you guys there. Can't wait to version 3.
