Issue:

Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: unable to connect to localhost:143 (Connection refused) in /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/plugins/login_auth/functions.php on line 129

Solution:

– In primary case check weither IMAP service is enable or not from WHM->service    configuration->mail server configuration.

– If it is enable try to restart the Imap services with following command.

                   /etc/init.d/dovecot restart

– In some cases it will not start with the above command.In this case open the configuration  file  dovecot.path is  /etc/dovecot.conf .Add imap/imaps followed by pop3 pop3s.

                   protocols = pop3 pop3s imap imaps

– Now restart the dovecot service with the above command.In case still you are facing the same   issue while access mail service run the below script to rebuild dovecot.

                     /scripts/dovecotup -–force
