    have tried to installed dovecot 1.0.15 on Centos 4.6
    ./configure --with-pam
    make
    make install

    It got installed without error

    However when I do
    [root@~ ]# service dovecot start
    dovecot: unrecognized service

    When I do [root@~ ]# # locate dovecot
    It gives me many files......

    I do not know how do I remove above file and make fresh instalation or rectify the current problem.

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    When you install from source you do not install an init script, find the init script from the rpm package and modify that for your use.
