My mail server had a disc crash and I had to install a new disc and restore the
backups, that were a few days old. I moved a message from inbox to another
folder. Now the content of that IMAP folder is out of sync - the message list
window contains subject and other data from one message, but after clicking
another message is actually displayed.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a working IMAP setup
2. Restore the IMAP server to a previous state
3. Move a new message from the Inbox to another folder
4. Click on messages in the message list windows

Actual Results:  
Another message is displayed than the one that was clicked.

Expected Results:  
To display the correct message.

I don't know whether the server going back in time can be detected
automatically. Maybe I simply did not find the option to resync the folder
(other than to recreate the account).
