## Troubleshooting
Dovecot authentication can be tricky to troubleshoot.
If you think it is not working as it should, or chasquid isn't correctly
talking with it, the easiest way to check is to [increase dovecot auth logging
auth_verbose = yes
auth_debug = yes
One common gotcha is when dovecot is set up to use `user` instead of
`[email protected]`. In that case you can try setting `auth_username_format = %n` to
make it ignore the domain if present.
