Step 2:
  lmtp program seems to accept custom configuration file (-c _file_).
  The file specifies both passdb and userdb using Passwd-file.
  How to make lmtp skip attempts to contact auth server?

I want to achieve personal (single user) "server less" IMAP&LMTP over
STDIN&STDOUT configuration. 

Now I see:
  Error: userdb lookup: connect(/var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb) failed:
  Permission denied ...
Fixing/changing socket permissions is no solutuion for me because I want
to avoid need for any permanently running server.
