Here's the final deal. (See my other mail for a workaround.) What you
can do to get "normal" imaps operation running is...

1) Create a stanza in /etc/xinetd.d/imap like so:

# imaps - SSL-encrypted imap mail daemon
service imaps
disable = no
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/imapd
server_args = -s
flags = IPv4

2) Create an SSL cert. You might already have one from before. It goes
in /etc/ssl/certs, and needs to be named "imapd.pem". If you need a new
one, you can use this to create it (from

openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out imapd.pem -keyout imapd.pem -days 365
