I'd say it depends, I'm working with clustered filesystems in SAN
environments where mbox is significantly faster than maildir since
single mbox file generates much less overhead in form of distributed
file locking accross cluster nodes.
On single host systems with good file system I'd probably go with
Maybe someday I'll manage to do some benchmarking between mbox and
maildir with Dovecot.
