As part of hardening procedure, I need to rename root account in mysql.user table.
When I do that however, I cannot log in to dovecot. The error was "invalid username or password". Without any changes made, when I revert the username to "root", i could log in to dovecot again.

I am on Solaris 10 and using mysql 5.1.32
