I'm using Dovecot at home, Cyrus at $WORK. Both work very well for
their respective environments.
Whatever you do, my experience between mailbox formats has been that
mbox does not scale well and in fact can cause horrible problems when an
individual folder gets too big. Maildir seems to get around this
effectively, but you would be wise to tune your filesystem inode size
with your Maildir filesystem (as well as your mount options).
