ERROR: Connection dropped by imap server: Query: SELECT "INBOX"Last Modified: Aug 22, 2013, 9:10 pm
If you get the following error when trying to connect to your webmail client:

ERROR: Connection dropped by imap server
Query: SELECT "INBOX"

Check your /var/log/maillog for any dovecot clues.

It may be that the dovecot indexes are corrupted (sometimes happens between dovecot versions), so the fix is to simply purge the indexes, eg:

cd /home/username/imap/domain.com/user/Maildir
rm -f dovecot*

When you login to dovecot (either via webmail or email client) the index will be re-created, and you should be good to go.
