Getting Cyrus Up and Running

Edit /etc/services, if necessary, to contain the following line:

imap    143/tcp

Edit /etc/inetd.conf to include the line:

imap stream tcp nowait cyrus /usr/cyrus/bin/imapd imapd

Once the files have been edited, restart inetd. On most Unix systems, find the process ID, then send a HUP signal to the process using the kill command:

#ps –ef | grep inetd
root 13005    1  0 22:50:57 ? 0.00    0:00 /usr/sbin/inetd –s
# kill –HUP 13005

If your Unix supports the pkill command, then you can save a step by using the command:

#/usr/bin/pkill –HUP –x inetd
