Hi John

Thanks for responding. I've progressed somewhat - details follow.

I did have this option set, sorry - I pasted the previous config. The log
process appears to be working since I changed a few other settings.

Google is your friend:

This is the exact URL which I'd started from before I even started building

$ cat /service/dovecot-imapd/run
exec 2>&1
echo "Starting dovecot IMAP service"
exec envuidgid dovecot \
     /usr/sbin/dovecot \
     -F \
     -c /etc/dovecot.conf

$ cat /service/dovecot-imapd/log/run
exec setuidgid log multilog t /var/log/dovecot-imapd

I'm now getting the following error in the logs - any idea? The error isn't
terribly informative.

Fatal: sigaction(SIGRTMIN) failed: Invalid argument

---- My revised /etc/dovecot.conf is ----

protocols protocol imap {
  listen }

log_path log_timestamp 
login_dir login_chroot login_user login_greeting 
auth default {
  mechanisms   passdb checkpassword {
