    I've upgraded and I cant connect to my localhost mail. Its delivered with exim to ~/Maildir but TB IMAP fails to login

    $ doveconf -n
    # 2.2.9: /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
    # OS: Linux 3.2.0-57-generic i686 Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
    auth_mechanisms = plain login
    mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir: :INBOX=~/Maildir/.INBOX
    namespace inbox {
    inbox = yes
    location =
    mailbox Drafts {
    special_use = \Drafts
    }
    mailbox Junk {
    special_use = \Junk
    }
    mailbox Sent {
    special_use = \Sent
    }
    mailbox "Sent Messages" {
    special_use = \Sent
    }
    mailbox Trash {
    special_use = \Trash
    }
    prefix =
    }
    passdb {
    driver = pam
    }
    protocols = " imap pop3"
    ssl_cert = </etc/dovecot/dovecot.pem
    ssl_key = </etc/dovecot/private/dovecot.pem
    userdb {
    driver = passwd
    }

    $ telnet localhost 143

    I'm having a rather similar problem; see my posts at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2246048 for details and some log file excerpts. However I'm not using imap, just pop3. Perhaps between us we can figure it out -- or find someone who can offer some leads to a fix!

    What do your other config files look like? The last time I used dovecot.conf was in dovecot 1.x.

    As far as namespaces go, see here:
