Sounds pretty weird if it happens with IMAP too. Does this happen with 
one or multiple users? Maybe the user started doing some client-side 
filtering which causes it to delete mails in server too?

I haven't before heard of a problem where Dovecot deleted messages 
without client explicitly telling it to, and I find it somewhat 
unlikely that such a problem would only now show up..

And like others already asked, mbox or maildir? Although that shouldn't 
really matter either :)
