Trim /var/spool/mail/username? - Grin with cat attached — LiveJournal

Geek Q - mail admin, to be precise:|
My mail server runs Exim, and Dovecot IMAP. Incoming mail for myself is dropped by exim into /var/spool/mail/wechsler. Dovecot drops my mail into /var/mail/wechsler (INBOX) and ~/mail/* (subfolders).
Therefore when I collect mail via IMAP I don't need the data in /var/spool/mail/wechsler.
Thus the question:
Which service would usually trim this on a standard mailserver? I can't see a way for dovecot to do this, which I assume would be responsible for the task.
