Hello,
When i try to retreive mails using pop3 i get an pop-up window:
Sending of username did not succeed. Mail server servername.tld responded: +OK

In /var log/dovecot.log i can find:

Mar 18 13:27:32 pop3-login: Info: Disconnected: Connection queue full (disconnected while authenticating): method=PLAIN, rip=IP, lip=IP, TLS
Mar 18 13:27:32 pop3-login: Info: Disconnected: Connection queue full (disconnected while authenticating): method=PLAIN, rip=IP, lip=IP, TLS

In /var/log/secure i can see such messages:

Mar 16 03:17:57 mail auth: pam_succeed_if(dovecot:auth): error retrieving information about user user@domain.tld
Mar 16 03:17:59 mail auth: pam_unix(dovecot:auth): check pass; user unknown

Please increase the number of simultaneous POP3 connections in Dovecot config file (/etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf) in block "service pop3-login {}". For example:

service pop3-login {
   ...
   process_limit = 500
}

Then restart Dovecot service.
