    Did you check in the ISPConfig database if POP3/IMAP are really disabled (table mail_user; fields disable_pop3, disable_imap if you use Dovecot/field access if you use Courier)?

    I have the same problem. I added a new task on ISPConfig bugtracker. I propose to postpone the discussion there...
    Sorry for bad English...

    I've update courier in my Debian Lenny to Squeeze package today (for other reason - "big quotas, over 2 GB problem"),
    and voila - disableimap, and diablepop3 start WORKING.

    Courier version BEFORE update (WITHOUT working disableimap/pop option):

    ii courier-authdaemon 0.61.0-1+lenny1
    ii courier-authlib 0.61.0-1+lenny1
    ii courier-authlib-mysql 0.61.0-1+lenny1
    ii courier-authlib-userdb 0.61.0-1+lenny1
    ii courier-base 0.60.0-2
    ii courier-imap 4.4.0-2
    ii courier-imap-ssl 4.4.0-2
    ii courier-maildrop 0.60.0-2
    ii courier-pop 0.60.0-2
    ii courier-pop-ssl 0.60.0-2
    ii courier-ssl 0.60.0-2

    Courier version AFTER update (WITH WORKING disableimap/pop option):

    ii courier-authdaemon 0.63.0-3
    ii courier-authlib 0.63.0-3
    ii courier-authlib-mysql 0.61.0-1+lenny1
    ii courier-authlib-userdb 0.63.0-3
    ii courier-base 0.65.0-3
    ii courier-imap 4.8.0-3
    ii courier-imap-ssl 4.4.0-2
    ii courier-maildrop 0.65.0-3
    ii courier-pop 0.65.0-3
    ii courier-pop-ssl 0.60.0-2
    ii courier-ssl 0.60.0-2

    Maybe previous version courier haven't got MYSQL_AUXOPTIONS_FIELD in /etc/courier/authmysqlrc? (or this param is damaged).

    ps. funny is that I DONT upgrage "courier-authlib-mysql" - coz it want to upgrade mysql to squizze version (and I dont want this).

    I finally figured out what the issue is after hammering my head against a wall. The issue is partly with ISPConfig and courier-authdaemon.
    ISPConfig uses an ENUM field with 'n' and 'y' as the possible values. Courier-authdaemon (at least the 0.60 version) does not evaluate that to 0 and 1.
    I have changed authmysqlrc as follows:

    MYSQL_AUXOPTIONS_FIELD concat('disableimap=',if(disableimap='n','0','1'),',disablepop3=',if(disablepop3='n','0','1'))

    After restarting courier-authdaemon, everything works as expected. Please use this ONLY IF enabling / disabling does not work for you using the normal method.

    The solution doesn't work for me.
    I've edited /etc/courier/authmysqlrc as follows :

    MYSQL_SERVER localhost
    MYSQL_DATABASE dbispconfig
    MYSQL_USER_TABLE mail_user
    MYSQL_HOME_FIELD homedir
    #MYSQL_QUOTA_FIELD concat(quota,'S')
    #MYSQL_WHERE_CLAUSE access='y'
    #MYSQL_AUXOPTIONS_FIELD concat('disableimap=',disableimap,',disablepop3=',disablepop3)
    MYSQL_AUXOPTIONS_FIELD concat('disableimap=',if(disableimap='n','0','1'), ',disablepop3=',if(disablepop3='n','0','1'))

    and restarted courier-authdaemon

    But users with disable IMAP checked still can login through IMAP

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    After too many hours, I discovered that Bharath's solution is working only for non-SSL connections

    When a user connects to mail server with IMAP-SSL, the disable IMAP function is not working and the user can connect.

    One step forward but not a complete solution.
