Ubuntu: Dovecot service stopped


I am running on Ubuntu 10.10. My Problem is; dovecot service automatically stops. How to get rid of this problem?

Here is the line from the dovecot log.

dovecot: dovecot: Fatal: Time just moved backwards by 17 seconds. This might cause a lot of problems, so I'll just kill myself now. http://wiki.dovecot.org/TimeMovedBackwards: 1 Time(s)  

Thanks in advance.


As the log indicates - you're going to want to have a look at Dovecot Wiki: Time Moved Backwards The article details that this is due to ntpdate running and updating the time in chunks too big for Dovecot to handle. It also lists several alternatives - primarily running ntpd which will simply slow or speed the clock up and not preform a hard reset.

It also provides methods for disabling this check in Dovecot itself.
