However, I am a bit confused.  Will maildir eliminate this file locking

would Evo lock one one type of file differently than another?
Or are we talking about the same thing?

With maildir, there's nothing to lock; all mail resides in its own
files.  You get a new message while deleting a message, it adds a file
and deletes a file ... it doesn't have to lock the file for the new
message to be appended, unlock it, then re-lock it while another message
is deleted.
