Apologies - I should read more carefully. Googling for the error message

The deficiencies are outweighed by the advantages, or to put it another
way, by the deficiencies of other browsers. I don't want to get into a
browser war here, but I though I've used FF for many years and still
keep it up to date, I find Chrome extremely fast (both to start up and
in page rendering) and on the whole more reliable than FF, in large part
because of the process-per-tab model, which I believe FF will adopt in a
future version. It's also less of a cpu hog.
The problems I mentioned above are annoying, but I know about them and
they only affect me at well-defined moments.
Also, none of the above precludes me from going back to FF if/when it
catches up with Chrome in these areas. Competition is good :-)

It's been a long time since I've used dovecote. Currently using cyrus-imap
I have not seen that kind of error. Right now, I'm seriously thinking about
Be that as I may. If I remember correctly. You will have to go to your mail
cache which should be somewhere in /var/mail (could be wrong about the
location) and go through a process of elimination.
1) shut down your MTA (etc, sendmail, postfix, etc.).
2) Shutdown your imap server.
3) Make a backup copy of your mail cache
4) Delete the email that is causing you the grief (be mindful of the first
message that says don't delete me. And be mindful of the seperator
5) a) Restart your imap server and mta
b) If that didn't fix the server go through steps 1 -5a again only
a different email or section of emails.
c) If you've only deleted 1 email then thats that. If you've deleted
a section of emails, you will need to restore the backup, and go
through steps 1- 5a making the section you delete smaller and smaller
until you eliminate the email causing you the trouble.
I wish there was an easier way to do that, but I couldn't find any

But unfortunately, there may be more embedded files hidden behind some
magic which Okular does not understand. :-( (In the case of the form in the
linked thread, that was the case.)
