The default for maildir_copy_with_hardlinks is "yes", so you may
want to turn it off manually. But, I'm not sure you really want
to do this. Dovecot acls can protect the files from imap access,
and exporting them via a raw filesystem seems counterproductive
to your security goal. Also, performance will suffer.
