Totally weird. However, I'm guessing I'll have this error again, so it may be worth leaving this thread open because maybe I'll be able to get a narrower date range next time and just look at the headers and see if I see anything missing or off.

The reason I think it'll happen again is because I reported this issue on 2/21; I first started by moving all emails from that folder prior to 2/21 into a different folder; this reduced the error count from 4 to 2, which means that I got this error twice more after initially reporting it.

Here's one thought though: the error is in my SMS folder, which is the folder I use to backup text messages from my phone. The program I use is SMS Backup+ (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zegoggles.smssync&hl=en), which sends my SMSes to my local (Zarafa) IMAP. Perhaps this program is occasionally creating an incorrect header or conflicting with Offlineimap in some way. Of course, this doesn't explain why moving the email would fix the header, but maybe the source is somewhere between these two programs?
