The first thing to test is that you can access courier-imap directly
using another IMAP client. I.e. can you use fetchmail to retrieve from
your local courier-imap server? I use Netscape Messenger, but any mature
mail reader that supports imap could be used to test.

courier-imap recently changed from using "pam" directly to using a
daemon called "authdaemond". It listens on a local unix socket. It is
configured by /etc/courier/authdamond if you are using the debian

What version of courier-imap do you have?
