I guess you could have a look at:
For example, a pop3 connection requires one pop3-login process and one pop3 process (unless your are running in "high performance mode"; but this doesn’t seem to be the case).
So, you would have to adjust the process_limit setting for both of these services.
IIRC, those settings are by default set to 0 and thus take the value of default_process_limit (which in turn defaults to 100).
Of course, as others have already noted, such settings must remain within the limits configured at the system level.
