Unable to connect/authenticate after Debian SSL update

Dovecot mailing list
Just applied Debian SSL updates, due to vulnerabilities reported:

"Package        : openssl
CVE ID         : CVE-2019-1547 CVE-2019-1549 CVE-2019-1563

Three security issues were discovered in OpenSSL: A timing attack
against
ECDSA, a padding oracle in PKCS7_dataDecode() and
CMS_decrypt_set1_pkey()
and it was discovered that a feature of the random number generator
(RNG)
intended to protect against shared RNG state between parent and child
processes in the event of a fork() syscall was not used by default.

For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
in version 1.1.0l-1~deb9u1.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.1.1d-0+deb10u1."

I am running Buster. Upon installing these updates, Dovecot immediately
stopped allowing authentication:

Oct  1 16:47:11 relay monit[539]: 'dovecot' failed protocol test [IMAP]
at [localhost]:993 [TCP/IP TLS] -- SSL connection error:
error:00000000:lib(0):func(0):reason(0)
Oct  1 16:50:22 relay monit[539]: 'dovecot' failed protocol test [IMAP]
at [localhost]:993 [TCP/IP TLS] -- SSL connection error:
error:00000000:lib(0):func(0):reason(0)

and

Oct 01 16:51:18 imap-login: Info: Disconnected: TLS initialization
failed. (no auth attempts in 0 secs): user=<>, rip=71.198.57.170,
lip=10.0.0.81, session=<0EdTB+KT+/NHxjmq>

Each time this occurs, dovecot restarts:

Oct 01 17:03:08 master: Info: Dovecot v2.3.7.2 (3c910f64b) starting up

I am at a loss. Dovecot had been working fine for ages. It's not clear
to me why a routine SSL update would completely break it. I'm unclear
how to proceed. This is a small personal server, but nevertheless I have
a number of people using it who rely on it.

Here is my local.conf ( I added the ssl_protocols and ssl_min_protocol
entries just a few minutes ago while attempting to resolve)

Re: Unable to connect/authenticate after Debian SSL update

Dovecot mailing list
And as usually happens, right after posting this I found the problem by
looking in the right place!:

Oct 01 17:06:58 Error: pop3-login: Failed to initialize SSL server
context: Can't load DH parameters: error:1408518A:SSL
routines:ssl3_ctx_ctrl:dh key too small: user=<>, rip=199.73.114.98,
lip=10.0.0.81, session=<s/ZZP+KTVszHSXJi>

fixed with:

root@relay: /etc/dovecot # openssl dhparam 4096 > dh.pem

sorry for the noise.
