I'm having/had a similar problem (hasn't happened recently, but I'm still 
concerned about it), but I use Maildir locally in KMail.  It's an IMAP 
account, and the IMAP server (which I also run) is also using Maildir.  
There's no mbox anywhere, AFAIK.  Why would I be having similar "nullified" 
email problems, if mbox is the culprit?

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
