I have several old archives with about 8000 mails in each file. I can see all mails without problems in my Imap folder, but when I move the exact same file to the local folder there are only about 3000 mail and some of them are corrupted (like a wrong timestamp 1970).

This happened after I compacted the folder. I can import this file in for example Kmail and there the mails are properly displayed. It also happens only when the mbox file is large (>3000 mails).
