I don't think what you are describing is mbox.

MBOX: "All messages in an mbox mailbox are concatenated and stored as
plain text in a single file"

You don't have to keep all mailbox folders on a single file. Typically we have a file per mail folder.


And doing any such thing is bad. If you have an IMAP server you should
access your mail via the server.

One of the advantages of dovecot is that you also can access files directly, and it is happy about it.
