Re: [Evolution] IMAP-Account - new message count, but no messages

it looks just as it should. You have quite small (height speaking)
message list, but that won't do any difference.

I then left the INBOX folder and went to the account entry itself.
Despite the fact, that I had deleted the contents of the search
field, on the account level the field still contained the string
"test". I deleted the string there, too, and returned to the INBOX -
and say what: No more messages.

Okay, that means that there is still applied some filtering on the
folder, only the UI doesn't show it. If you make the message list
taller, then you might see some text, either "There are no messages in
this folder" or a longer text explaining that the searching is on, but
nothing satisfies the search criteria.

There was a bug in the past that when the selected folder changed from
folder A to folder B and the folder A had any filtering on, then the
filter had been re-used in the folder B, only the UI didn't indicate
it. Those are basically the steps you described above, except the
'folder A' is 'the account node' in the folder tree. You might be
affected by bug [1], which had been fixed for 3.18.3/3.20.0, while you
have "only" 3.16.5. There is no debugging variable to verify that,

I do not understand one thing. The filters are saved in the state.ini
file. We tried to rename it, thus start without any filters, but you
still did not see your messages. That's odd, especially when the file
had been renamed with the evolution being off.
