    Hello everyone. I am running Ubuntu 12.4 perfect server NGINX and running into the following error:
    dovecot: imap-login: Maximum number of connections from user+IP exceeded

    I went to /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf but I don't see there where to increase it past 10. How do I do this?

    try this

    try this

    dovecot -a | grep mail_max_userip_connections

    You should see how many connections is allowed for userip.

    open dovecot.conf and paste this in global section
    mail_max_userip_connections = 30

    Thanks but I'm still a bit confused

    Thanks a lot for the reply, but what do you mean by global part?:confused:

    It mean, you have to paste this just on top of dovecot.conf file for example
