What do you get when from "netstat -nap | grep 143"?

# netstat -nap | grep 143
tcp        0      0     *
LISTEN      1055/dovecot
tcp        0      0 ::1:143                     :::*
LISTEN      1055/dovecot

[and some irrelevant stuff that happened to have "143" in it]

Assuming this confirms your suspicion, what do I need to do to fix it?

Yes, that confirms my suspicion.....

Took me a bit, had to research....

Edit /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-master.conf and comment the lines like so....

    #address = localhost # allow plain imap only on localhost

Do that for all the protocols you want to enable on an external interface...

I think I remember opening the firewall as well, I needed to allow nfs and I'm pretty sure I recall allowing pop3s and imap from external.

If you are running sendmail you will have to tell it to accept from external as well. The file is in /etc/mail, edit to remove the loopback only assignment, then make the new config and restart sendmail.
