It needs to be owned by a non-root user. Otherwise, compromising the server
could result in compromising your box, and dovecot won't allow that.
Try adding a non-priv'd user to your system; one that doesn't have access to
anything, and is not usedby any other program. Then set the permission of
dovecot to that user.
