No output and terminates immediately?

This needs more extensive debugging, `strace -o imap-debug.log
/usr/sbin/uw-imapd` or with gdb if you have it.  But first:

Change your environment variable to empty, currently you have "CYGWIN = server"
according to your cygcheck.out, but you are not running cygserver so that
setting does nothing useful, I'm not sure if it interferes.

Also from your cygcheck.out I see you have the latest openssl, 0.9.8, but the
dependencies on the uw-imapd.exe I have are:

$ ldd /usr/sbin/uw-imapd.exe
uw-imapd.exe    -> /usr/sbin/uw-imapd.exe
cygcrypto-0.9.7.dll     -> /usr/bin/cygcrypto-0.9.7.dll
cygwin1.dll     -> /usr/bin/cygwin1.dll
cygssl-0.9.7.dll        -> /usr/bin/cygssl-0.9.7.dll
kernel32.dll    -> /c/WINDOWS/system32/kernel32.dll
ntdll.dll       -> /c/WINDOWS/system32/ntdll.dll
advapi32.dll    -> /c/WINDOWS/system32/advapi32.dll
rpcrt4.dll      -> /c/WINDOWS/system32/rpcrt4.dll

I have both openssl libraries, and this old version of imap depends on the 0.9.7
version of openssl. There is a separate package named openssl097, perhaps the
imap package has the wrong dependency and only checked for the latest openssl...
if so, then you found a bug in the installation database.
