Last week, my dovecot on cPanel got problem can't start up.

And i read maillog, it said Fatal Error, SSL PIM problem something, your forgot "<" ... etc

I need help, where cPanel config the SSL in .conf for dovecot ? Maybe the upgrade miss the "<" before the line to the SSL.

thank you.

Our company was dead yesterday for couple hour because Dovecot stopped at 4AM, hahahahah.
But thanks God that cPanel support both Courier and Dovecot, we have just switch to Courier with 1 click on WHM, and everything is running fine. However, I will love to hear from you guys, how to resolve that problem with dovecot, cause we love to use doveadm to search email which courier search is not supported.

Thanks Michael,

To update, it looks like the issue could not be reproduced at this time. Feel free to update us if you are able to enable Dovecot again for testing purposes.

Thank you.
