Re: mailbox being modified

| login for which I've always kept a screen open running mutt.

| that new messages have arrived, I down-arrow to see them. They appear
| *without* the 'N' indicator, and an error message says the "mailbox
| was externally modified, flags may be wrong". Any 'N' flags I've left
| attached to earlier messages stick around; it's just the latest arrivals
| that lose that indicator.
| I'm logged in under the same user name on other screens doing nothing
| related to mail; no one else is on the computer.
| I'm really scratching my head trying to find out how the mailbox could be
I had lately set up some phone synchronizing software at my mobile
phone carrier, but let it default to POPping email from my Unix box to
forward it to my mobile phone.
