IMAP - No body information available

I have something going on that is really weird.  If I start the below code with $i=91 and iterate to 100, I get 9 nice structures.  But, if I start $i=90 then I get 10 messages that say:

Warning: imap_fetchstructure() [function.imap-fetchstructure]: No body information available in ...

What seems to be causing this is when I move mail from oldmailbox/cur to newmailbox/new

I'm using Postfix and Dovecot on a FreeBSD machine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

	$result = imap_fetchstructure($mbox,$i);
} while ($i<100);

Open in new window

Message 90 could have been deleted, but has not been purged.
Check the options of the message. The options could be reflected at the end of the filename separated by commas.
i.e. filename:option1,option2
Also check the permissions on the message () i.e. does it have a t or T in the file permissions/type.

The only options I see are "2" and some have an "S".

All the permissions are "-rw-------"

Could you look at the message to see whether there is truely a message without a body?
Use the size of the message as an indicator. I.e. all messages but one are 4k while one message is 0 or 10bytes.
I think these options indicate whether the message was seen, or read.
