 Not being familiar with imap that well as my organizaiton prefers pop3, I'll
 assume that it hooks into wrappers. If so, you'll need an entry in the
 hosts.allow file to allow connections to the daemon. Check out your
 /var/log/messages to see if there's any rejected connections.
 

Nothing relevant in /var/log/messages when I try using imtest. If I try connecting to 
the server with my mail client, I get no reply(positive nor negative; Sylpheed is 
uninformative that way). However, it seems like sendmail's trying to to its work:

Sep 12 21:02:59 myhostname sm-mta[22959]: h8CBWwMc020830: SYSERR(root): Could not 
connect to socket /var/imap/socket/lmtp: Connection refused by localhost

There was a defaulted setting in /etc/hosts.allow about not allowing other daemons to 
accept connections - I think - but I removed that. Still not much happening, and 
imtest still doesn't work, either. sm-mta(different PID each time) is still getting 
that error.

imapd.log is empty.

Is it not enough in this case to restart inetd? Is there a way for me to reload those 
settings without restarting the whole system?

Turns out the problem was in /usr/local/etc, where cyrus.conf was in the same format 
as imapd.conf. It wasn't being told which sockets to open. I copied cyrus.conf.dist 
over it, now I'm getting something else to work through. Hopefully I'll be able to 
progress on my own.
