Well yeah. The active= path tells dovecot to create a symlink pointing 
to the source file. But if you look at hidden files in that directory 
"ll -a" you will see a .svbin file was created with the symlink. I don't 
fully understand what is happening under the hood, i just know setting 
active works.
