    The root receives error messages that say:

    Account: <email ID and domain name>

    Application: imapd

    Logins: 2

    Interval: 1821

    Allowable: 1 logins per hour

    How do I increase this limit?
    I went to Server Configuration -> Tweak Settings -> Mail but I don't see anything there.

    It seems that you are having CSF firewall installed in your server. In CSF, there is an option to block the IMAP logins if it exceed the number of times per hour per account per IP address has accessed. Usually it is disabled. Check in /etc/csf/csf.conf file for the option "LT_IMAPD" and set it to 0 if you need to disable this option or else increase the count.
