Upon startup, the main instance of imap4d server switches to the
privileges of group "mail".

After successfull authentication, imap4d switches to user's privileges,
unless using "virtual database" authentication. I am not sure what will
be the right thing to do in this case. If you wish to change to user's
privileges when using virtual database, change the last argument to
mu_auth_data_alloc() function (auth/virtual.c:161) from 0 to 1.
