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?
