This book apparently covers some of Dovecot:

It's geared toward building a complete mail server solution, so it's not
dedicated to Dovecot.  How much of Dovecot it covers I don't know, as I've
not read it.

It was apparently published in Sept 2006, 3.5 years ago.  Standard caution
applies:  some/much of the technical information may now be incorrect as
things have changed in the software over the 4+ year period since the author
put pen to paper, so to speak.

This is the most recent book I could find that covers a little bit of
Dovecot.  There doesn't appear to be a "Book of Dovecot".  Dovecot is
covered a bit in The Book of Postfix, but it was published in 2005, so it
will be even farther out of date.

The book linked above may be worth the read for general architectural setup.
