I see

dovecot[47939]: imap(gustik at<48079><XVTMe3qNFpQqAchEJAsZAoGuBtbxcZmK>:
Error: open(/var/run/dovecot/replication-notify-fifo) failed:
No such file or directory

even though, right after:

Jul 12 13:54:41 madarka dovecot[47939]: aggregator:
Error: Client sent invalid input

when I send

echo 1 > /var/run/dovecot/replication-notify-fifo

and yes, of course

prw-rw-rw-  1 dovecot  vmail     0B Jul 12 13:57


FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE r342152 GENERIC  amd64

Dovecot running inside a jail with a version of 2.3.6 just recently
compiled from ports!

I ve allowed raw sockets and sysvipc for this jail but it did not help.
Also making explicit imap mail plugins notify and replicator did not

Any ideas?
