>>> I'm running Solaris 9 Sparc with Dovecot alpha 5 and using maildir
>>> format.. I noticed in the log file the following error:
We used to have this problem when we started using 1.0-stable. In the startup
script, I issue the plimit command:
if [ -x $EXEC -a -f $CONF ]; then
echo "Starting Dovecot..."
$EXEC -c $CONF
plimit -n 8192,8192 `cat /var/run/dovecot/master.pid`
echo "Starting Dovecot failed."
The sleep is there sincs it takes a little while before the pid file appears.
