I'm trying to enable postfix auth. I'm editing the this section from /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-master.conf

# Postfix smtp-auth
unix_listener /var/spool/postfix/private/auth {
    mode = 0666
    user = postfix
    group = postfix

But after I restart dovecot I get this error:

Starting Dovecot Imap: doveconf: Fatal: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-master.conf line 88: Unknown setting: unix_listener

    Make sure to put this unix_listener block in a service auth { ... } block. – user186340 Sep 17 '14 at 3:26

You should put this unix_listener block inside a service auth block, like so :

service auth {
    unix_listener /some/path { ... }
