I have one more question regarding this.

My service needs to access the socket /var/run/dovecot/anvil. The problem is
that this socket (at least on my system) has permissions only for root:

srw------- 1 root root 0 May 22  2020 /var/run/dovecot/anvil

And I don't think it's a good idea to run my service as root. Is it possible
to add permission to this socket for another user? If yes, what should I
change in Dovecot config?
