Actually deleting indexes shouldn't matter at all, since Dovecot does
that by itself after writing that error message.
But you're still using it with NFS? Probably somehow related to that..
The error message means that Dovecot saw a message 1187 that wasn't in
index, but index said it already had seen message 1188. Probably means
that the file was temporarily lost in some sync, but later seen again in
another sync.. Dovecot isn't very forgiving if readdir() skips files.
Are there other maildir clients than Dovecot updating the maildir? That
can cause those problems.
