Could you post the output of 

  ls -l ~/.evolution/mail/local/Inbox
-rw------- 1 grasshopper users 1256574 2010-08-19
21:01 /home/grasshopper/.evolution/mail/local/Inbox

So since local/Inbox is file and not a directory that's why you are
having a problem.  i.e. that's why you get the error message:
OK, so that must be when the problem started.

 Error storing '~/.evolution/mail/local/Inbox/OpenSuSe (mbox)': Summary
 and folder mismatch, even after a sync

In your mail folder tree in the Evolution gui, do you have a folder
called 'OpenSuSe' hanging of the Inbox?  If not, where is the folder
called 'OpenSuSe'?
I tried to delete it, but it's still there hanging off the Inbox. It
seems to have become invisible as the OpenSuSe mail are now coming into
my Inbox.  but when I check the Folder Properties I read OpenSuSe Total
messages 3882

One other thing, you said in an earlier message: "but once I go to the
OpenSuSe account" - what do you mean by that? 
but once I go to the OpenSuSe account then back to
trash, the mail is back again. There are now 3,610 mail in trash

If it helps, I did a 'zypper dup' and it's since then that the problem

No idea what zypper is ... quick google ... ah OK, it's a command line
package manager for RPM, aka a yum clone. Did you do the full upgrade to
OpenSUSE 11.2 using this, or was it after an update to 11.2?
Yes, I did the full upgrade zypper dup.  I actually meant to do a 'zypper up, but 
then decide to go ahead to see what was new :(

Many thanks
