below my "dbmail-imapd.service"
i will send a copy to the dbmail-mailing-list

some minutes ago dbmail-imapd <defunct> was in ps aux
i am not sure what here happens, finally systedm shoots the service down
PIDFile is given and /etc/init.d-scripts used this too

[root at testserver:/lib/systemd/system]$ cat dbmail-imapd.service
Description=DBMail IMAP Server
After=syslog.target mysqld.service local-fs.target network.target
