I had this problem on occasion with TB 2.0 and lower with an Exchange 5.5.
server using its IMAP connector.  It was somewhat annoying.  Only occurred in
IMAP folders though, never in the Inbox folder.

I've never had this problem with Dovecot 1.0.15 and any rev of TB.  I'm using
mbox format mailboxen and Postfix local delivery to /var/spool/mail/.  IMAP
folders are stored in /home/user_name/mail/.  Dunno if that makes a difference
WRT this problem, but I've yet to experience it.
