Not really. It's not that simple with IMAP. For example what should be
counted as "deleted"? Is it marking a message with \Deleted flag? Is it
when the message has been expunged with EXPUNGE command? What about if
the message was copied to Trash mailbox and then expunged?
Or downloading messages .. Should it be counted if only message headers
are downloaded? Or only message body without headers? What about if only
the first MIME part of a message with multiple MIME parts?
Dovecot v1.1 logs the number of transferred in/out bytes by the
connection. Would that be enough? :)
Disconnected: Logged out bytes=1768030/2699695
Also mail_log plugin can log all those delete, expunge and copy events:
