    Hi,
    Getting the following error on Debian 10 with dovecot.
    Code:
    Warning: Inotify instance limit for user 5000 (UID vmail) exceeded, disabling. Increase /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_instances:
    
    Searched the internet got the following solution.
    Code:
    fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 4096
    fs.inotify.max_user_instances = 4096
    
    Is this correct? For debian 10? Should this be added in /etc/sysctl.conf?
