Right-click->Properties does not produce the usual popup.  In

Presumably you subscribed to the Gmane NNTP server. The folder doesn't
contain mail but news articles from the Fedora group.

How this folder was created?  How can it be deleted?

Unsubscribe from Gmane.

Evolution has been acting weirder and weirder lately, losing messages,
moving folders into subfolders of others, crashing frequently, etc.

None of that has been happening to me. Try moving ~/.evolution to one
side and creating a new one.

Also, if you want to report problems, it's important to state which
version of Evo you have, what platform it's running on, and what kind of
mail is giving trouble (POP, IMAP, Exchange, ...).

What would be a more reliable mail reader?

This is probably not the best place to ask that question ...
