    Hi,
    I am trying to setup ISPConfig 2.2.32 on CentOS 5.3 32-bit. I
    followed the how-to on howtoforge for CentOS 5.2[1]. The control panel
    is working and the emails are being delivered to the mailbox. But, I
    am unable to login via IMAP.
    Here's the output from telnet
    Here's the logs for dovecot
    /etc/dovecot.conf
    I have checked that the username and password exist and are correct.
    I am not sure if dovecot should be authenticating using PAM or use
    some files or mysql. Any pointers to the solve the issue will be
    appreciated.

    You have to use the username of the email user and not its email address to connect to the imap server. Usernames in ispconnfig 2 have the format web[ID]_username
