Where from did you get Dovecot 1.1.8 for CentOS? CentOS 5 comes with
v1.0.7. Was this a upgrade from v1.0 to v1.1? Then you will find some
information at: http://wiki.dovecot.org/Upgrading/1.1

How did you try to start Dovecot? "service dovecot start"? Try to start
dovecot directly, w/o using the init-script.

Please include `dovecot -n` output in your reply.

The trapper recommends today: decade.1008507 at localdomain.org
