The a/ac part is generated from md5 part of domainname, i want to change to
hash modifier according to: http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Variables this is my
next step :) because this is my new installation profile.

Using 02770 on parent, dovecot create homedir with this permission:

drwx--S---  3   50 _sysadms    3 Apr 20 15:55 cb

A member of _sysadms group cant access:
id -> uid=450010(_freire) gid=450000(_sysadms) groups=450000(_sysadms)

cd cb
-su: cd: cb: Permission denied
