    I've been testing the latest ISPConfig version via git-stable and for some reason I am unable to get dovecot to work. There were no errors during the ISPConfig installation.

    I'm using the following:
    Debian 8.4
    Dovecot 2.2.13
    Postfix 2.11.3

    When I try to restart the dovecot service I get this message:

    ● dovecot.service - Dovecot IMAP/POP3 email server
    Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/dovecot.service; enabled)
    Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Wed 2016-04-27 15:16:53 CDT; 25s ago

    Please let me know if you need any more information.
