Comment (by yebyen):

 Well I let it synchronize all of my messages and pull down as many bodies
 as I thought it was going to, then I did ALT+A to select all new messages
 and ALT+O, to open them all... It eventually opened one window for each
 message, and they either crashed opening too many, or closed immediately
 on opening, or on rare occasion required me to press ALT+Q to close all
 new windows and return to the New Mail window, sometimes finding a dialog
 about the next message that does not have a registered handler to open.

 I rebooted at least twice, left the machine on overnight to receive new
 mail (really incoming mail this time, not just mail that Haiku hadn't seen
 before) just to see what happened, and this is what happened.

 When I woke up there was another dialog for "The application: mail_daemon
 -E ..." quit

 There was new mail in the mailbox

 I did not try to read it or ask how many!  I think I can live with this
 bug, may be worth even passing it to others to help demonstrate the
 necessity of cleaning out your IMAPs.

 I think I might still have problems with Sync as long as I have too many
 labels and read/unread messages, even though they are no longer new.  So
 which happens first, this bug report is closed or my IMAP store gets
 cleaned to bare cupboards?
