I know this is a late reply but you can just login into your server and generate a new password using doveadm

doveadm pw -s 'ssha512' -p 'new_password' #copy the output
mysql -u root -p

>update mailbox set password='doveadm output' WHERE username='postmaster@domain';

With this you can check whether the email includes the dot and possible change the query to change the username, but this might have unknown consequences.
