    I noticed that my POP3 server in offline. I tried to restart dovecot, but got the error:

    [root@s2 dovecot]# [root@s2 dovecot]# /etc/init.d/dovecot restart
    Stopping Dovecot Imap: [FAILED]
    Starting Dovecot Imap: Error: Dovecot is already running with PID 1898 (read from /var/run/dovecot/
    Fatal: Invalid configuration in /etc/dovecot.conf

    How do I restart it?

    /etc/init.d/dovecot restart
