    Your imap server s not started. Restart the iamp server and check the mail.log file for errors.

    The imape server that you installed is dovecot accoding to the logfile. So the restart command is:

    service restart dovecot

    1) Is ispconfig installed and have you created a email user in ispconfig?
    2) Did you use the full email address to login to imap? The username is "user@domain.tld" and not just "user".
