Just to close off this thread....This seems to have fixed the problem.
I upgraded to a newer version and that alone made a huge difference.
However, I didn't make the configuration changes I was supposed to at
that time. The following day, I checked the server logs and saw the
problem happen a couple times within a second and that was it.
Significantly less, but it prompted me to read the dovecot website again
and make the recommended configuration changes.
Running for a couple days now, no problems and positive reports from the
clients. Thank you for the resolution and best wishes to everyone.
