What version of dovecot and exim are you using?

Might post a copy of your exim setup.

The advantage of dovecot as the LDA is that the indexes get updated on delivery. I didn't notice any 
difference in performance on a little used server while using Thunderbird. There was some talk about 
how it would load a server if a message is sent to many accounts at once vs what happens when 
someone logs on with their MUA. I went with the dovecot setup in the end (not that it matters) but 
have the other one left in the config for a quick change out if needed.

If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate.
