Fresh install of Centos 5.2
I have installed webmin

i keep getting the error:

Cyrus-IMAP server cannot be reached by user cyrus
Either it's not installed, it's stopped, or the module configuration is incorrect.

I have gone in to SSH and tried:

# cyradm -user cyrus localhost
IMAP Password:
              Login failed: generic failure at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/Cyrus/IMAP/Admin.pm line 119
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with  as cyrus

I have set the password to something i know i am not miss spelling.
