I have one message in the listing of messages in my Inbox that I cannot
get to or delete. If I try to open that message, I get the error:

Unable to retrieve message
Cannot get message 134185 from folder /..../.evolution/mail/local/Inbox
No such message

How can I get rid of this dead message? 

Sounds like a broken index. See an earlier thread from yesterday and
today on how to fix this.


Thanks Patrick, but deleting all index files didn't help. The message in
question is still there.

You could try vacuuming the SQL database files (shutting down Evo first
of course):


cd ~/.evolution/mail/
for i in `find . -name folders.db`
        echo "Rebuilding Table $i"
        sqlite3 $i "vacuum;"

If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas.
