I don't think this...
I'm using dovecot with mailbox format but if in the home directory of an
user there is a folder named Maildir, then dovecot start to use
automatically maildir format.
The same can be done with procmail to deliver mails

Are there any plans to add this option? How difficult would it be to
change Dovecot to check the type on open? Any guidance on how to do
In the meanwhile I've checked a few other changes in Dovecot
1.0-stable, and it seems to work relatively well. However the
possibility of mixing mbox and maildir is really missing.
