Thousands or error popups "local folders"

Hello all,
my father did some cleanup of his mail (delete a few hundred messages) and now there's a continuous flow of popup windows in the notification bar, about 4 per second for the last 2 hours, with messages like "Dossier locaux: erreur type non pris en charge", which I believe translates to "Local foders: unsupported type", and also "Local folders: impossible de supprimer le message 1364235472.R12.father-desktop" (*) which I'm not sure about the exact english equivalent, something like "unable to delete message..."

There are only about a hundred messages in his inbox (no other folders), and all have been duplicated. There where several hundred 46 bytes messages with "unknown" as the sender and no content, which I've shift-deleted.

(*) the message numbers keep changing and they indeed don't exist (I searched in .local/share/.local-mail.directory/).

Now how do I stop all those errors? What happened ?!?
Thanks

What version of KDE PIM are you using? How were the messages deleted?

I can't check the version right now, but it's a clean install of the latest Kubuntu, so it's recent.
As to how he deleted them, I'm not sure but I think he went into the trash and deleted them instead of using the empty trash feature.

Anyway, after a few hours the messages stopped, I Shift-deleted all the unwanted and strange messages left (all the 'good' messages left were in quadruplicate, but with only one actually readable), rebooted and things seem back to normal.

If this happens for a hundred messages, I'm worried about my own 25 year old archive of messages...
