I wanted to read this (mentioned here) and ended up thinking about subscribing to WIRED which took me to an article about the WIRED paywall The Next 25 Years of WIRED Start Today and their FAQ.

So I was getting errors like this in syslog:
Jul 6 17:35:53 integrity systemd: Started Dovecot IMAP/POP3 email server. Jul 6 17:35:53 integrity dovecot: doveconf: Fatal: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-ssl.conf line 79: ssl_dh: Can't open file /etc/dovecot/dh.pem: No such file or directory Jul 6 17:35:53 integrity systemd: dovecot.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=89/n/a Jul 6 17:35:53 integrity systemd: dovecot.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
This failure was affecting other parts of my system (i.e. postfix SASL).
The solution was to generate the dh.pem file:
root@integrity:/etc/dovecot # openssl dhparam -out dh.pem 4096
