Déja vu. Didn't we have this mail basically some days ago?

weird combo of "000100" bytes inserted. Very much the ame thing as in
your mail from Tue, 3 May 2011 11:13:28 -0700 (PDT).

It is being regenerated, in the latest version. In the IMAP->Maildir
case you can simply blow away your LocalStatus in a reasonably
synchronized repository. You could only lose some flag changes if there
have been changes inbetween and "undelete" some emails that have been
deleted on one side since the last sync. 

I am not sure if the IMAP<->IMAP case works, because it has that
additional UID mapping file and I don't know what happens if you simply
delete a line in LocalStatus. So far, I have never audited the code for
that case.

Huh? Sorry, I did not get this. :-) We will copy over a message to the
other side if a LocalStatus entry is missing, if that is what you meant.



Deja vu:  You're right, this user1 corrupt localstatus looks a lot like the user2 from a few days ago.

Is what you're saying: I do NOT need to fill in all possible UID's in between these damaged UIDs, to make sure the mails will stay on the remote and local imaps.

What specifically is the criteria for message deletion??  Does the message have to be explicitly marked for deletion on either the remote (LocalStatus says 'D' or whatever) or local imap (I assume this 'D' is obtained by querying the local imap live)?
