Re: [Evolution] Local store for IMAP accounts

FYI peabody has changed the UIDVALIDITY on me several times and several
other people at Ximian so this isn't quite true. In fact, this is what
drove me to fix the command-lines-can-be-too-long-for-the-imap-server

the IMAP server probably changed the UIDVALIDITY tag, which means that
the IMAP server has assigned brand new UIDs to each message in that
particular folder. This can happen at any time.

while the server *can* do this at any time, in general it will only do
it if you mess around with its data files behind its back. Eg, if you're
using UW or Courier imapd, and you rune Pine or some other mailer
directly on your mail files on the server machine, rather than always
accessing them only through IMAP.
