"Cannot bind" usually suggests you are running something else on one of
the ports that it wants to listen on (Courier, from memory, supports
imap, imap over ssl, and it's own authentication daemon, all of which
will probably want a port of their own).

If all else fails, try lsof and netstat --listen.
