That's an ATrpms version (living in atrpms-testing).

Personally I would recommend fixing the above, as the dovecot version
as shipped by the upstream vendor (0.99.11 from 2004) is not
maintained by the author anymore. See

	      http://wiki.dovecot.org/UpgradingDovecot

for details. If you were using the default config nothing really
affects you, but since you have troubles there must be something
changed. Also check with rpm -V dovecot whether the config files are
changed and whether you have *.rpmnew files instead.
