I think we can differentiate between those case. When somthing went
wrong while fetching, we won't get the "OK" reply (implying the server
is finished) but it will crap out in the "fetch" part already.

We can detect that the mail has been deleted by checking that the data
variable is empty (need to verify this).

Either we return "None", or we raise an OfflineImapError, severity
Message, both makes sense. Whatever we do, we need to make sure the
Maildir backend returns the same, in case a message has been deleted
