Good day Guys

I am getting this error message in the logs.

dovecot: imap-login: Error: 
net_connect_unix(/var/run/dovecot/stats-writer) failed: No such file or 

Running Debian Buster.

With a bit of googling, I tried the suggestions of:

But still this problem is  persisting.

Here is the config.
~ # cat /etc/dovecot/conf.d/20-dovecot-stats.conf
service stats {
     unix_listener stats-writer {
         user = dovecot
         group = mail
         mode = 0660

~ # ls -la /var/run/dovecot/stats-writer
srw-rw---- 1 dovecot mail 0 Nov 21 17:00 /var/run/dovecot/stats-writer

Could anyone please shed an idea or tip of where more too can I look.

Many thanks
Brent Clark
