thanks again! I think I got this one right now.

I risked to restat dovecot with the new version and got this
in the logfile now:

Jun 08 17:20:19 imap: Error: dlopen(/usr/lib/dovecot/modules/imap/lib10_quota_plugin.so) failed: /usr/lib/dovecot/modules/imap/lib10_quota_plugin.so: 
undefined symbol: mail_storage_module_id

Jun 08 17:20:19 imap-login: Warning: SSL alert: where=0x4008, ret=256: warning close notify []
