Did you see the notes from the package 'View news and info' button?
However, I need to add some items for Solaris 10.

On Solaris 10, also run inetconv after the entry is added
to /etc/inetd.conf.  Then use `inetadm -d` to disable the services and
`inetadm -e` to enable the services.

When fam is configured and running properly, you should get the
following output from rpcinfo.  This is from a Solaris 10 box.

[root at sws601 ~]# uname -a
SunOS sws601 5.10 Generic_118833-24 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60
[root at sws601 ~]# rpcinfo -p |grep fam
    391002    1   tcp  32794  sgi_fam
    391002    2   tcp  32794  sgi_fam
[root at sws601 ~]#

Courier IMAP will be happy when `rpcinfo -p` returns the above.
