Yup. The full set, if you include the secure versions too is:

courier_imap_imapd_ssl_enable=3D"YES"
courier_imap_imapd_enable=3D"YES" courier_imap_pop3d_ssl_enable=3D"YES"
courier_imap_pop3d_enable=3D"YES"

It's worth reading /usr/local/etc/rc.d/blah.sh for any port you install.
inetd is not the right way to start these ports.

Then to start them up without a reboot, do=20

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/blah.sh start

But you do need the rc.conf entries first.

How? You might also need:

courier_authdaemond_enable=3D"YES"
in /etc/rc.conf

Also try

#telnet localhost 110

and so on for all the pop3 and imap ports. If courier is running, you'll
get something like:

#telnet localhost 110
Trying ::1...
Connected to your.host.name.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK Hello there.

Telnetting to the port is good because you can then talk pop/imap and
diagnose any other probs.

Peter.
