Note that there are Two files which represent your inbox: Inbox and Inbox.msf.
The Inbox.msf file is an index for the Inbox file.

It sounds to me like your Inbox.msf file is having a problem. One thing
you can do is to try compacting the Inbox (by right-clicking on Inbox in
SeaMonkey and selecting 'Compact this folder'). If that doesn't help, you
can remove the Inbox.msf when SeaMonkey is not running, then restart it and
allow SeaMonkey to re-create it.

Good luck.
