Dovecot will usually add the hostname of the delivering system into the maildir file name. As long as the delivery is collision free in terms of file names then you can scale up as many read/write nodes you like.

This has the same problems as with NFS (assuming the servers aren't only delivering mails, without updating index files). http://wiki.dovecot.org/NFS
