I saw a dramatic improvement in speed with both Thunderbird and Squirrelmail after switching from mbox to maildir.

How did you handle the transition from mbox to maildir?


For my POP users, I didn't. I leave everyone's 'inbox' in /var/mail in mbox format. If a user connects via IMAP (Squirrelmail, etc.), folders in /home/%u are created and stored in maildir format, but their inbox stays in /var/mail in mbox format.

See Multiple Mailbox Locations: http://wiki.dovecot.org/Namespaces

Dovecot also comes with convert-tool. For the users who had mbox files in their home directory, I used it to convert those to maildir format. I don't think the port installs convert-tool; I got it by doing 'make' in the dovecot port directory and manually copied it from there.
