[Dovecot] OS X Mail Administration

I'd like to request some feed back from any OS X Mail Admins on the  
list, please.

Currently running 10.4.9 here using postfix / dovecot and I'm about  
to take the plunge from mbox to maildir. I just migrated from uw-imap  
to dovecot.

As you're aware, users inbox's are customarily stored in /var/mail/% 
username and personal folders under /Users/%username/Library/Mail/IMAP.

I'd appreciate if you'd share with me the directory structure that  
you use, or would use in my situation.  All mail storage will be on  
the server so disk space is not an issue.  I'm a bit confused whether  
or not to keep the inbox separate from the other imap structure as is  
the OS X default: should all mailboxes be under inbox, etc.

Your input would be appreciated.

Thank you,
