hey,

After seeing ur dovecot configuration there is one problem i can
see.You haven''t disable plaintext_auth ,if you are using plain text
authorization then don't use ssl.

Change disable_plaintext_auth= yes 

pop3s_listen = * rather than [::]



I am also attaching my dovecot.conf file but I am not using ssl .

Make the changes and see if that works for you.

# Different IMAP clients work in different ways, that's why Dovecot by default

# for all new messages. Normally you should leave this alone, unless you know
# what most of your IMAP clients are. Caching more fields than needed makes

#     if synchronization is set to "Headers Only".

#     Outlook and Outlook Express never abort IDLE command, so if no mail
#     arrives in half a hour, Dovecot closes the connection. This is still
#     fine, except Outlook doesn't connect back so you don't see if new mail

## Authentication processes

# mechanism (auth_mechanisms, how the client authenticates in the IMAP or
# POP3 protocol), which password database should be queried (auth_passdb),
# and which user database should be queried (auth_userdb, to obtain
# UID, GID, and location of the user's mailbox/home directory).
#
# You can have multiple processes, though a typical configuration will
# have only one. Each time "auth = xx" is seen, a new process
# definition is started. The point of multiple processes is to be able
# to set stricter permissions. (See auth_user below.)
#
# Just remember that only one Authentication process is asked for the
# password, so you can't have different passwords accessible through
# different process definitions (unless they have different
# auth_mechanisms, and you're ok with having different password for
# each mechanisms).

#  support this, and the password can be encrypted by Dovecot to match
#  any of the encryption schemes used in password databases.
# digest-md5 and cram-md5 - both encrypt the password so it is more
#  secure in transit, but are not well supported by clients, and
#  require that the password database use a matching encryption
