Default Dreaded ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server

I followed The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.4 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3) guide for this.

Here's the mail log:

Wow, just wow.

I've just discovered that the "Perfect Server" guide is more like the "Broken Server" guide.

After enough research I was able to fix this with a couple of simple symlinks that were NOT mentioned in the tutorial.

Please update tutorial or there will be many more topics about this in the near future!
