Based on the error reported the problem is the IMAP server. MailMate 
says that the number of messages was decreased in the mailbox without 
any prior so-called EXPUNGE messages telling which messages were 
deleted. I'll need to see a log file (and maybe read up on the IMAP RFC 
to pinpoint the exact nature of the problem). You can use the Activity 
Viewer (command-0) to find a relevant log sequence.

And yes, MailMate is probably overreacting since I believe this is a 
common problem with some servers (I'm not ruling out the possibility 
that a MailMate bug plays a role in your particular problem). What is 
the server address (or server implementation)?
