I am using Maildir, and as I said it works _just_ fine if I delete and
re-add the account. Also works fine via Squirrelmail (which is an imap
client). I wasn't aware that courier supported mbox mailboxes at all
(it only sees the Maildirs in my ~/Maildir).

I had an INBOX.default maildir in ~/mail, along with tons of other
folders. I converted to courier this morning and moved ~/Mail to
~/Maildir, renamed all folders from foo to .foo, and moved tmp, cur, and
new from ~/Maildir/INBOX.default to ~/Maildir/ so that the hierarchy
that courier prefers would all be in place. All seemed well until I
noticed after surfing through some of my mailing lists that I couldn't
open INBOX (~/Maildir) anymore. I can send new messages and see the new
message count increment, but I can't access it.

I was about to say that I thought you couldn't unsubscribe from INBOX,
but oddly enough I was never subscribed to INBOX (when I first added the
IMAP account, INBOX shows up as per default). I did try subscribing to
it, which doesn't change the behavior.

I s'pose I could try this, but I'm afraid I'll split off messages
between two inboxes and have trouble merging them.

Once again, using maildir this shouldn't be an issue. My INBOX has the
least messages of all, compared to ~6 months of debian-* lists, lugs,
I'm wondering if extraneous files in ~/Maildir could be a problem.
There are msgid.lock and msgid.cache files from procmail/formail keeping
track of duplicate messages - should these be moved to ~/.procmail ?
