(In reply to Tristan Miller from comment #8)
With this line in /etc/apparmor.d/local/usr.sbin.dovecot, starting dovecot
still results in the same error message -- "Can't open log file
/var/log/dovecot.log: Permission denied". But bizarrely, it *does* write to
that log file, but only to complain that it can't write to the log file:

*lol*

Apr 11 09:17:10 master: Info: Dovecot v2.3.1 (8e2f634) starting up for imap
Apr 11 09:17:10 master: Error: service(log): child 26965 returned error 80
(Can't open log file)
Apr 11 09:17:10 master: Error: service(log): command startup failed,
throttling for 2 secs

The problem occurs whether I use "a" or "w".

When dovecot writes these log messages, do you get any messages in audit.log?
If so, please paste them. (Ideally test with "a" in the rule.)
