I seem to remember that you can start courier's imapd
(/usr/ports/mail/courier-imap) from a script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d,
without having to use inetd. Presumably, starting it directly from
the command line would work as well(?). Please note, however, that
it has been a while since I used it, so you may want to investigate
it further before going there.
