I use a MariaDB to store users for Dovecot 2.2.10. The Dovecot keeps giving "Disconnected unexpectedly" errors, and I can't find a reason. Is there anything I could look at?

The important part being:

What does the "doesn't support credential lookups" mean? Is this a problem with MariaDB or Dovecot?

Well, I solved this question anyway. But, it is not actually a solution. I just simly update my dovecot to the newest version (from 2.2.10 to 2.2.36). I don't know why this works (maybe because of some supernatural power). So, if anyone knows why dovecot 2.2.10 cannot work correctly with MariaDB, please answer below.
