I've been seeing this warning in the last few months, when my email client is unable to connect to our dovecot IMAP server.
Warning: service(imap-login): process_limit reached, client connections are being dropped
Googling this I've seen suggestions to just up the limit (currently it's set to 144). Also a suggestion that some email clients using IMAP IDLE are holding open connections too long, so I should break the connection after 30 minutes.
Should I do one or both?
