Please check the file ownership of your mail-folder in

and also of the file  

These are often screwed up (don't ask me why)...I already had this kind of

Jeneral hint with the diagnostic of such faults is to run the program inside 

just run

    strace elm  

and watch the output...Somewhere you will notice kernel file-operations
failing with an error-code. Strace gives you a short verbose reason, and
further you can figure out which file is causing the misbehaviour.

hope this helps
