If you change (via the Filtering tab of the Manager dialog) spam and unsure
to not move but be untouched, does the problem go away?  (The messages will
stay in the Inbox, obviously, although they will be scored).  (If so then it
means that the problem is just the moving - if not, then something to do
with getting hold of the message itself).

Have you tried setting the save_spam_info option to False as described in
the troubleshooting guide?  I know that it can help with IMAP connections,
which are notoriously problematic.

Thanks.  If save_spam_info doesn't help, then maybe we need to get Outlook
to save the IMAP4 conversation, since it seems that perhaps that is where
things are going wrong.
