Thunderbird jerked on me big time. It never did anything like this 
before! Switched off Digest mode, individual messages aren't so complicated.

def single(i):
         v =i.next()
     except StopIteration:
         raise ValueError('No items')
     except StopIteration:
         return v
         raise ValueError('More than one item')

print single(name for name in('bob','fred') if name=='bob')
