I'll do a fresh install and see if I can find specifically what triggers this

One thing that is most likely different from the average install is that
/home/nick/Data is a symbolic link to /media/nick/Data_sdb. 

/media/nick/Data_sdb is mounted at boot to /dev/sdb3

The df entry looks like this:
/dev/sdb3            591G  556G  4.8G 100% /media/nick/Data_sdb
(I know the partition is at 100%)

And the /etc/fstab entry is:
UUID=329dc068-a4ed-45fd-9b0b-0ef09ca926ee /media/nick/Data_sdb ext4 defaults 0

My initial thoughts are that this symbolic linking and use of a different
partition 'may' have something to do with the problem.

So my plan would be to start with a working install using the default maildir
location, then change to a valid maildir folder on a different directory. Not
forgetting the symbolic link.

I'll update you if I can reproduce this on a fresh install.

Just to note, I have tried deleting  /home/nick/.local/share/akonadi and
letting it rebuild but it still would not index the emails.
