Your Q is very general, have you read these?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dovecot_(software)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrus_IMAP_server
Maybe you should ask about specific concerns in the context of these articles.

I have tried both and found Dovecot significantly easier to configure (on RHEL4) - it did not require the setting up of individual mailboxes.
