This did not solve the problem.

I did a 'rm -rf /home/user/apps/email/*/*' , and I rebooted the 
device immediately: this did not solve the problem.

I suspect there must be some other file(s) which record the 
internal state of the folders/mailboxes, and that this internal 
state got corrupted...

Any ideas?

I am afraid, that backup+reflash+restore would not solve the 
problem, if the problem would be preserved in the settings that 
are backuped, thus that I really would have to reflash without 
backup/restore... Of cause I want to avoid this.

  regards, Armin.
