    there are times when dovecot returns authorization failures when the auth criteria are correct.

    For example, someone checks theirail with outlook.. all is well.
    the next minute they get auto failures.. wait a few minutes click retry and it works again.

    the maillogs show the authorization failure, but it has to be a problem with the dovecot auth piece?

    is this thing somehow load sensitive, so that if the server load is over, say 2, it just doesn't authorize checking email? if so can this be changed? if not, then why is it behaving this way and what's the fix.

    This seems to happen a lot when backups are running. and then various times throughout the day.
