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:

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

For local mbox-format mail, it's normal for Inbox to be a file, even
when it notionally has subfolders (that's what Inbox.sbd represents).

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'?

Presumably inside Inbox.sbd but without a more detailed listing we can't
be sure.

One other thing, you said in an earlier message: "but once I go to the
OpenSuSe account" - what do you mean by that? 

Good question.

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

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
OpenSUSE 11.2 using this, or was it after an update to 11.2?

I'm afraid I have nothing to contribute regarding OpenSUSE or zypper. I
use Fedora.
