Good time of the day.

How do i close this feature (a dovecot TTY) for the world (got from
auth. log file):

localhost auth: pam_unix(dovecot:auth): authentication failure;
logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=dovecot ruser=accounts rhost=

Apparently you have dovecot imap or pop3 server installed. To confirm this, execute the command

dpkg --list 'dovecot-*'

If you have lines starting with ii, like

ii dovecot-imapd 1:1.2.15-7 secure IMAP server that supports mbox and maildir mailboxes

the corresponding package (in the case above, dovecot-imapd) is installed. If you don't need any of the dovecot services (if you don't know if you need, you don't need), then remove the packages listed above with commands like

apt-get --purge remove dovecot-imapd


Thanks for Your time.
