That would be a system limits issue, not a dovecot issue iirc.
Youi'll need to raise the limits for fds (file descriptors) in your
system for the dovecot user to be higher than it currently is (not
really sure what you should raise it to).

There may be another way (for instance _maybe_ there's a dovecot
option for the config), I'm not sure though.
