Default Can't read Dovecot inbox!

Hello,

I have just run yum update on my F17 server and it updated amongst other
things selinux and dovecot (and a new kernel).

I have rebooted, yet I cannot now ssh into it from outside my network, I
can't get mail from outside my network (accessing the dovecot IMAP
server running on the box) and from within my network I can access using
(for example) my Evolution client, all the folders which are held under
~/mail (and into which procmail filters stuff), but I CANNOT access the
INBOX (/var/spool/mail/mark).

In Evolution, I can see the mail that was there, but if I click on any
of the emails it refuses to display the email.

There were some of these in /var/log/dovecot:
========================================8<======== =====================
Sep 30 14:25:37 imap-login: Warning: Auth process not responding, delayed sending greeting: user=<>, rip=192.168.2.4, lip=192.168.2.2, TLS, session=<PbZ2OevKiADAqAIE>

But the most recent attempt to login with Evolution simply produced
this:
========================================8<======== =====================

========================================8<======== =====================

Which seems OK

doveconf -n shows:

Help! What do I do - I need to be able to access my mail!

Thanks in advance

Hmm..I *think* I've sorted it out. It seems to have been one corrupted
email in the Inbox. Deleting that meant that I can now read mail as
normal.

Sorry for the noise (but I'm still keeping a close eye on things...)
