Hello everyone , I've looked into your issue and apparently your server stopped unexpectedly and left its pidfile in /var/run/dovecot. I was able to remove this pidfile, master.pid, and restart dovecot. It is now running normally, but I would watch it just to make sure for the next hour or so.

This was the case.
