It happens separately for different folders, and doesn't seem to correspond to
recently-deleted mail. It has asked about my Sent folder many times (from
which I NEVER delete anything), various mailing lists (which I clean out
periodically, but haven't recently), pretty much anything that has mail
filtered into it directly, I think. I don't believe it's happened to any
folders that don't get new entries except by me manually moving mail.
The error is also not asking about deleting mail on the server. It's saying
that mail has been deleted on the server, and asks if it's OK to delete
