No, I didn't. The client should be irrelevant. Nobody should be able
to corrupt a remote mailbox only by issuing imap commands.

BTW: Does getmail have an option doing the same as fetchmail --folder
option at all?

I appreciate that you are trying to help, but it seems to me that you
didn't read the report, or you didn't understand it.

Answer: No. I didn't. Why should I? The mbox was fine before I tried
to retrieve it. Please read the report!
