I’m in the process of upgrading an old server from Fedora 21 to something more 
modern.  Now, Dovecot won’t let any client login to get their email.

PAM audit_log_acct_message() failed: Operation not permitted
imap-login: Disconnected (AUTH failed, 2 attempts in 10 secs): user=<username>, 
method=PLAIN, rip=192.168.1.94 lip=192.168.1.94, TLS, session=<sessionid>
