I've never user Cyrus IMAP. But Dovecot is magnitudes faster than UW-IMAP
and Microsoft Exchange.

Exim is an MTA, Dovecot an POP3 and IMAP server. I'm not sure why you
are comparing those two.

I've never configured Exim, only its predecessor Smail. And I didn't
like SMail very much because it had too many ways to do the same thing.
As a result you could never understand an SMail setup that somebody
else had configured.
My impression of Exim is (my two previous employers used it for a while)
that it struggles very much if your mail queue has 1,000 or more mails
in it. But that might have improved in the last few years.
