They are not official packages. As I understand, questioner asks for
official ones. As a matter of fact - there are none for stable.

You can try to use it from testing with apt pinning and package
priorities. For example:

/etc/apt/apt.conf or /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99stable:
APT::Default-Release "stable";

Package: dovecot*
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 999

and use "apt-policy show dovecot-<whatever>" to check.
Testing packages still receives a lot of changes, so it will be a little
bit annoying for frequent updates. Let me know if you choose that way
and if it works for you.
