first of all, this isn't a mail database bug. Second, I need to know if you're talking about IMAP or POP before I can reassign this bug appropriately.

this is probably a dup of bug 59945.
According to Sashish, this is a pop server, so yes, it could be a dup of 59945. Not sure who's going to own POP bugs now.
IS this still a problem in the latest nightlies?
