Have you ever thougt about switching to maildir? The performance is better and you get rid of the poplock and corrupted mailbox problems.

No, it's all domains or none.
Which distribution do you use?

Install dovecot:
Code:
yum install dovecot
and then enable Maildir under Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email in ISPConfig.

No. Postfix supports maildir and mbox.

It doesn't matter for webmail if you use Maildir or mbox.
But if you change the format, you must transform your clients' emails from the old format to the new one, otherwise the mails are lost.
You can do this with tools like mb2md (mbox -> Maildir) or maildir2mbox (Maildir -> mbox).
