Hm. I use dovecot, too, on my private mailserver - but I don't have a
webmail setup there, because I use IMAP exclusively.
I always wanted to try IMP/DIMP again, but never really got around to
install and configure it.

Dovecot is very fast, so IMP should perform well.
When you want to continue using your current mail-platform (which is
reasonable), you will have to find something that integrates well with it.
OpenXchange can do that, but it will need to integrate into your
provisioning-infrastructure. It's not a drop-in replacement (nothing is,
once it's sufficiently complicated).

I know one ISP here, that tried to use IMP and it performed very bad.
They went with OpenXchange in the end - but they have lot's more users
than you ;-)
