[Dovecot] Index files

I am doing some testing with Dovecot and wondered if it was normal for
the deliver program to create index files for an Inbox (the test Inbox
is over 7MB), but to not update the index files after the initial creation,
even though messages continue to come into the mailbox.  Note that during
this testing, no IMAP or POP accesses are being made.  Would it matter
if a command-line program such as mutt were reading/updating the Inbox
in question?  Shouldn't Dovecot delivery be continually updating the
index files as new messages arrive in the Inbox?
