IMAPStore connection dead : JIRA is not processing incoming emails

Recently we have upgraded JIRA to 6.4.11 and found users unable to create issues and adding comments now. Incoming emails features used to be working on previous JIRA version 6.2.
I have enabled jira incoming debug logs and found the following debug log content. Incoming mail server configuration(IMAP) is successful and I am able to telnet mail server port.

Hello Srinivas,

 

I recommend checking Mail and Mail Handlers Troubleshooting to confirm if you're not facing any common issue.
