I had the same problem; the answer is that the port only puts an rc
script for imapd into /usr/local/etc/rc.d, not one for imapd-ssl.  Copy
/usr/ports/mail/courier-imap/work/courier-imap-1.7.1/imapd-ssl.rc to
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ and make it executable.
Then execute it with the argument "start".  That'll get things going for
you.  (Do the same for pop3d as well if you want POP3/SSL.)
