Well, the most important thing to know would be what process is causing
it: imap, pop3, dovecot-auth or something else?

Also does load level mean CPU usage or disk I/O usage?

ps/top should show which process is causing it if it's CPU usage. If
it's disk I/O then it's most likely imap/pop3 problem. And if that's the
case then I'd like to know more about what OS and filesystem you're
using and what Dovecot settings.
