[Dovecot] zlib config questions

After nearly running out of space I swapped in larger disks and then saw the recent threads about zlib compression. Unfortunately I'm still confused after reading <http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Plugins/Zlib>.
In order to compress new email being stored do I only need to change
10-mail.conf to this:
mail_plugins = $mail_plugins zlib
and 90-plugin.conf to this:
zlib_save_level = 6
zlib_save = gz
Or do I need to instead (or also?) add it to the list of plugins in 20-imap.conf?
A simple 'sudo doveadm reload' to enable?
Once enabled, is there an indication in the logs that compression is taking place?
Do new mail files have a suffix like .Z to indicate they've been compressed?
Any gotchas to be aware of?
I'm running macports dovecot 2.2.5.
Thanks for any help.
