I have changed the permissions to the following:
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 mail secmail 26512 Aug 18  2011 
srw-rw-rw-. 1 mail secmail 0 Jan  1 09:41 /var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb

Then I get this error (steve is who the email is addressed to):

Jan 01 09:43:47 lda(steve): Fatal: setgid(501(steve)) failed with 
euid=0(root), gid=0(root), egid=0(root): Operation not permitted (This 
binary should probably be called with process group set to 501(steve) 
instead of 0(root))
