Some mail bodies are not fetched from IMAP server (might be pop too but I don't
I see the usual headers in the mail list. When I select the message, the bottom
or mail viewing panel is not updated. If I reply (auto quote original is on)
nothing from the original note is in the composition window.

So I conclude the message was never fetched from the server.

However, presumably as the message tracking list thinks it got the message the
first time, selecting the message again will not fetch the message.

- This is happening to 3 of the 10 e-mails I found in my inbox this morning.
- It happens to 1 of 4 mails from one person so it seems not related to some
weird mail header.
- I checked the mail in the mail spool on the IMAP server and find nothing
obviously weird about the not fetched mails.
- switching to another folder and comming back does nothing (mail must be marked
as fetch even though lack body and headers)

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Get new mail. Some of them you can not read.

Seems to not be doing this.

to add to the possibilities: The NT box which shows the problem is reaching the
mail server via a VPN. The connection can be slow and the mail server
occasionally closes the socket. The Linux box which does _not_ show the problem
also runs the IMAP server.

So, this could be some strange timing problem or mis-handling an error.
