Dovecot - client connections are being dropped

Two users reported that they were not receiving any email this morning. I logged into the email server, which is a CentOS Linux system using Dovecot to provide POP3 email service, i.e., it is the software on the server to which email clients connect to download users' email. I then connected to the POP3 port, TCP port 110, using the Telnet program on the system and attempted to check email for a user's account by issuing the user command, but after I entered the command the connection was terminated before I could enter the pass command with the password for the account.
# telnet 127.0.0.1 110
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
Escape character is '^]'.
user nell
Connection closed by foreign host.

So I then checked Dovecot's log file. I saw many entries similar to the following ones in that file:

# grep dovecot /var/log/maillog | tail -5
