Subject: Possible to specify local repository ownership?

Dear Sirs,
Is there any supporting way to set user:group ownership in order to save the maildir in the local repository using these pre specified? I don't want to have root ownership, even if I run the offlineIMAP as root, also I don't want to create separate user.
