 You are asking about automatic storage tiering. You can get what you 
 want in a transparant way, independient
 of Dovecot. Some storage vendor (search for Fully Automated Storage 
 Tiering - FAST from EMC or Compellent, recently
 bought by Dell) get what you are asking for.

 If the budget is low, you can achive a "poor´s man" storage tiering 
 with some shell scripting, cron and soft links; Or you can look at 
 http://code.google.com/p/fscops/ for a more mature implementation. Or 
 just use ZFS and "hybrid storage pools"

 Merry Xmas
