Squirrel Mail error after install plugin HELP!


I've tried to install a vacation responder for SquirrelMail on a dedicated server.

Downloaded the autorespond plugin from here:


Unpacked it, uploaded it to the server.

SSH'ed to the server via Terminal on the mac.

and after saving /usr/share/squirrelmail/config/conf.pl I got this error.

"Error connecting to IMAP server "$host_name:143".Server error: (0) php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known"

Disabled the the plugin but now webmail is still giving this error. Really need this up and running again ASAP. Don't even care anymore about the plugin.

Help is greatlly apreceated!!!

PS initially foowloed this post to do the install: http://www.davekb.com/browse_computer_tips:autoresponder_for_squirrelmail:txt

Are IMAP and DNS running?  When you run a 'netstat' do you see an all zeros or an IP listening on TCP port 143?  For DNS, that is UDP port 53 and /etc/resolv.conf.
