I cannot reproduce this with nagios2. What I tried:

- install nagios2 (2.5-0) and nagios-plugins
- touch /etc/nagios-plugins/imap.cfg
- add an IMAP service to localhost:
  define service {
        use                     generic-service
        host_name               localhost
        service_description     IMAP
        check_command           check_imap
- Start nagios

My nagios correctly reports this service as DOWN.

Can you please check whether the issue can still be reproduced with
nagios 2.5?
