not too sure whats wrong with that mail box, i eventually found the
offending mails and *cough* just deleted them *cough* they are just old
archives that I have that i wanted indexed.

Thanks for the small patch, if i come across it again, i will save the
email and send it on to you to figure out whats broken. In hindsight I
should have kept some samples before deleting things.
on a slightly off topic on sup, i've eventually got sup working
relatively well with my archives of mail. and i quite like it :), I have
one question about the overall list of the inbox-box mode. Is there any
way of say doing an "all mails" mode? or is there a magic query that will
let me list *all* of my mails much like how gmail has the "all mails"
list where it shows "all mails except spam and trash" ?
