Are you using KMail? I am, and I've very occasionally received mails looking 
something like that which may have been caused by a bug in KMail (or kio_pop3 
or another component). It hasn't happened for quite a while now.

I don't have an example available, but I think the ones I got looked more 
like responses to the LIST command (hence my thinking it was a bug...), i.e.

1 2913
2 3101

...where a mail notifier had indicated I had 2 messages. Hmm, maybe IMAP (or 
a different protocol you're using) responds with something more like your 
example and it is in fact the same bug? Anyone here know IMAP?
