back to 2001, when I first started using Linux as my main system. I currently
use Dovecot, but started out with UoW IMAP.

Given it appears this is for business use, I hope you have maintained backups.

Thankfully Yes -- but not needed,

The answer in this case is 'good filtering and bad memory....' The
confirmation provided by grep:

grep Date: * | grep 2011 > ../tmp/mdates.txt
grep "Jan\|Feb\|Mar\|Apr" mdates.txt

It appears that archive did what it was supposed to do (as far a saving
messages from the inbox). However it did NOT save them in yearly folders as set
in the settings tab. That threw me off and focused my attention on the archive
situation. The missing email that was not in either the inbox or archive had
been filtered into numerous folders... So, yes, I get to wear the pointed
circular cap while sitting turned facing the corner for the next few hours....
(which is much better than the alternative... ;-)
