A couple of times I've had the troubling experience

It seems messages have been erased, not moved. Note that 
not all messages are affected. 
   Can't find clues in Evolution Help. 
   What mouse or mouse-keyboard events select and clear 
contents of mail folders? 

Select-All + Delete + Expunge
JS: i certainly did not do this. 

Which is pretty hard to do inadvertently.

I've accidentally switched the search filter or category filter before
and made everything *appear* to disappear. 
JS: i have defined no filters or categories. this seems 
something to chase down, but after looking i don't find 
any history of such (that would have been inadvertently 
made or some action taken on some default with just one 
or two keyboard strokes and mouse clicks). 

I've never had mailbox contents unintentionally go-away.
JS: this is the second (or third) time i've experienced 
this. Currently: Ubuntu 10.04 and Evolution 2.28.3; 
Formerly: Can't remember but certainly Ubuntu 8.X or 9.X 
and the default Evolution + standard patches.
