Not sure that helps, but I traced back the problems I experienced to some
corrupted mails in the Inbox (or other mail folder), or was it the .index
I do not know how those mails got corrupted but they have been moved a couple
of times between different systems (M$, Suse different versions and KUbuntu)
and through different computers
