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.

I doubt it. There's nothing wrong with this structure in principle.
However you still haven't answered my earlier question, which I now
modify slightly, i.e. did you remove:

~/.evolution/mail/local/Inbox/Inbox.sbd/OpenSuSe.ibex.index and
~/.evolution/mail/local/Inbox/Inbox.sbd/OpenSuSe.ev-summary ?

In fact I'd suggest doing it globally, just to be sure:

1) Stop Evo (evolution --force-shutdown)
2) Run:
        find ~/.evolution | egrep ".ev-summary\|.ibex.index" | xargs rm
        (copy the above line exactly)
3) Restart Evo

That will remove all indexes so Evo will recreate them.


Sorry, Patrick, I didn't send it to the list.

Thank you Patrick, it's been a long day.  I copied the above exactly, it
was all on one line on the C.L:

grasshopper linux-wakm:~> find ~/.evolution | egrep ".ev-summary
\|.ibex.index" | xargs rm -f

grasshopper linux-wakm:~> 

When Evolution started up, all the OpenSuSe trash was gone, but have now
returned: Error storing '~/.evolution/mail/local/Inbox/OpenSuSe (mbox)':
Summary and folder mismatch, even after a sync.

Thank you.
