that is because you dont have the file that holds the password the ldap client uses to bind.

Thank you for your reply.

I'm new in linux and much more on dovecot. Can you give me steps how would I add in the conf. So that it would look on the ldap.secret. Yes, I have openldap installed and it is running okay. However, I don't know how could I work my dovecot with ldap.
