Help on dict with QUOTA / perms

I'm setting up quota for my users, my users have a UID starting on >5000 and
GID = 5000, and when I query the quota, for example in IMAP, I get:


Nov  8 14:13:28 fastmail dovecot: imap-login: Login: user=<a at>,
method=PLAIN, rip=, lip=, mpid=18660, secured,

Nov  8 14:13:37 fastmail dovecot: imap(a at Error:
net_connect_unix(/var/run/dovecot/dict) failed: Permission denied
(euid=5000(<unknown>) egid=5000(<unknown>) missing +r perm:
/var/run/dovecot/dict, dir owned by 0:0 mode=0755)


Question is, should I have the GID on the users set to 0, or is there
another way to workaround it?
