     i'm not the expert you're looking for, so dont take my word as one. 
And i'm basically using Maildir instead of mdbox ...

     Anyway, i have dropped 'dovecot.index*' from some backups, full and 
incremental ones, action which made me save some Gbs of space on them. I 
already restored some accounts from these backups and had absolutely no 
problem at all !
