Whilst running a Dovecot system, you might experience the following error in your log file:
Jul 13 09:25:02 hostname dovecot: pop3-login: Fatal: Dovecot version mismatch: Master is v2.3.2, pop3-login is v126.96.36.199 (if you don't care, set version_ignore=yes) Jul 13 09:25:02 hostname dovecot: master: Error: service(pop3-login): command startup failed, throttling for 60 secs
POP3 and IMAP connections to the server will start failing.
Since v2.3.2 and v188.8.131.52 seems really like a minor difference, it’s safe to add
version_ignore to the end of your Dovecot configuration.
Add the following to the end of the file:
Exit and save.
