Re: [Dovecot] dovecot: pop3-login: Disconnected (tried to use disabled plaintext auth): method=PLAIN John Espiro Thu Jan 27 12:00:32 2011

OK... so one thing is that I see 4 dovecot.conf files:

/usr/share/dovecot/dovecot.conf
/etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
/etc/init/dovecot.conf
/var/run/dovecot/dovecot.conf

It's not altogether clear which one is being used by the service...  why
would there be four of them?
