Hi Sebastian,

no more than 1 MB any of the emails I'm having problems with.
I've just made a git pull ... thanks for your time, to every one coding there .... 
I'll let you know if it works now. I hope so ... ;-)

I have a question. Maybe someone can help me ...

Suppose I have an imap account Work and another one at Gmail, and I prefer to 
read emails locally. So, I'm syncing a maildir account with 2 imap accounts, 
first MailDir <-> Gmail and secondly MailDir <-> Work. 

Is it possible I'm experiencing an infinite loop because each imap account
wants to give me a different UID for some email?

I've read FAQ and I know this problem applies when syncing Imap_1 <-> Imap_2
but I do not know if it applies here ...
