Hi,
After restarting of my server, I am unable to send and receive mails.
I have checked the dovecot log, it is showing the logs like above and i tried to restart the ldap server and starting it again,but it is of no use.
Please help me to make my server work.

Re: Dovecot unable to contact Ldap after restart

The error log means OpenLDAP service is not running.
Please set "loglevel 256" in /etc/ldap/slapd.conf, then restart service "slapd". Check error log in /var/log/openldap.log.

Re: Dovecot unable to contact Ldap after restart

I am sorry, it was my mistake.
I locked myself while experimenting with fail2ban and iptables, all is working as expected after re configuring them .
Thanks for ur time.
