Re: [opensuse] Apparmor and dovecot clash in Leap 42.1

In the dovecot log on Leap 42.1 I see messages like:
imap(freek): Error: opendir(/home/freek/Maildir) failed: Permission denied
(euid=1000(freek) egid=100(users) UNIX perms appear ok (ACL/MAC wrong?))

After some digging I found that this is a problem caused by improper apparmor
rules for dovecot. Apparently apparmor does not allow access to the Maildir
directory tree by dovecot, which is obviously needed to access e-mail in that
directory. So IMAP is not usable any more. Any idea what rule should be added?

Made a bug report:

This was the problem when I installed on 12.2 as well!

See, for example

At the time I used the apparmour utilities to scan the log files and
build the necessary changes.

Try "man aa-logprof" to start with.

And its not just dovecot!

Oh, look!
