    Hi guys

    I have noticed tat every morning Dovecot stops working as I have to restart the service each morning. Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this? Went through some logs with not much being found.

    Found something in logs:

    myself now. TimeMovedBackwards - Dovecot Wiki

    I don't know what to do with the clock issue, but at least you should go to
    WHM-> Service Configuration-> Service Manager
    and check "Monitor" for imap (Dovecot IMAP Server).
    Then dovecot will be restarted automatically.
