problematic mail file

this is a mail file where the second message appears to be ignored by Thunderbird.

the second one is deleted - the x-mozilla-status line is 0x0008, which means it has been deleted. Did it arrive that way, or did you or a message filter delete the message?

there is no mail filter set to delete anything anywhere. The message appears for a moment the first time I look at the folder and then it's gone.

Have you looked in the junk mail folder? If you have the junk mail filter configured to automatically move or delete junk mail, messages we think are junk will be deleted from the folder.

nope, they are not filtered as junk. They just go kaboom. Not in the trash folder, not in the junk folder, nothing.

Do you have any extensions installed?

can you e-mail me your msgFilterRules.dat and your prefs.js? Somehow that message was deleted...

You don't have retention settings set on the inbox or the pop3 server account, do you?

I feel pretty stupid. Turns out that sharing the profile between windows and linux must have tampered with my junk mail rules. It not only began to tag regular mail as junk, but started moving junk mail to the junk folder on the Local Folders, where I never check - because nothing should be there. So this one is probably a dupe of another bug.
