You didn't have "protocols" line there. By default Dovecot only listens
for IMAP connections. If you want POP3 you'll need to add pop3 there.

You most likely don't want to have "passdb passwd" configured. pam +
userdb passwd is enough.

It looks like your PAM lookup is taking two seconds. You could look at
auth.log to see if PAM had logged something.

If nothing else helps, you could try using "passdb shadow" instead of
PAM to see if it makes it faster.

Run ntpd instead of ntpdate or whatever is currently moving your time
backwards. Or if you're running a virtual machine you may need to do
something differently..
