    Although we've increased "Maximum Size of a Authentication Process (MB)" but problem still persist.

    "Error: service(log): Socket already exists: /var/run/dovecot/log-errors"
    "Fatal: Failed to start listeners"

    Can you please run netstat command to check the PIDs running for port 110, 143, 993, 995
    For example
    netstat -lnp | grep 110

    Kill all these pids and then restart dovcot again.

    To clarify, were the instructions in the link I provided in my earlier response unhelpful? It should address the problem you described.

    Thank you.

    We have already increase the limit, but it was unhelpful.

    Would you describe below errors:
    "Error: service(log): Socket already exists: /var/run/dovecot/log-errors"
    "Fatal: Failed to start listeners"

    It seems like Dovecot is already started based on that error. Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
