Stabbing some more into the dark ...

You can check if inetd is executing the command:

$ telnet -KN 127.0.0.1 143

 it should reply something like:

Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS STARTTLS 
AUTH=LOGIN] localhost IMAP4rev1 2004.357 at Fri, 5 Jan 2007 12:46:59 -0600 (CST)
^]
telnet> quit
Connection closed.

$ telnet -KN 127.0.0.1 110

 it should reply something like:

Trying 127.0.0.1...

/var/log/debug.log should have entries such as:
