Coincidentally, I managed to do this myself last night.

For me, what happened was that evolution seems to have from a recent build
started to do some form of "smart sorting" on the mailboxes.

I.e., I have some "special" mailboxes within various folders/subfolders that
start with a "*" so that in a normal sort, they'll appear first. Evolution
seemed to honour that up until around Beta 4.

Last night I figured I'd try to move one of the resorted mailboxes. I.e.,
configuration was:

+ Local Folders
  + Shouldn't be first folder 1
  + Shouldn't be first folder 2
  - * Should be first folder 1

So I grabbed the folder that should be first and dragged it to "Local Folders".
I had sort of hoped that this might just force a manual repositioning of the
folder. Instead, it did as Blake mentioned, delete the folder and all its

Luckily I had a backup and only lost 3 messages :)
