    Hi,

    Since long days im working on the below to fix it, but im unsuccessful as i get the below when i try to start the dovecot service:

    [[email protected] /]# service dovecot start
    Starting Dovecot Imap: Error: service(pop3-login): listen(*, 110) failed: Address already in use
    Error: service(pop3-login): listen(*, 995) failed: Address already in use
    Error: service(imap-login): listen(*, 143) failed: Address already in use
    Error: service(imap-login): listen(*, 993) failed: Address already in use

    [FAILED]

    The below line has been set to *, but still no gain.
