is spool/user/graeme.mercurycload.net present ( graeme^mercurycloud^net
-- not sure on the way it is on disk )?
Sounds like some sort of fs error. If you can do nothing else, and it is
present, try moving the current directory out of the way, and recreating
the directory and then run reconstruct then delete....
Of course there is always the method of dump mailboxes.db file, edit,
reimport, but that won't necessarily solve the underlying cause of your
problem, just give you a quick fix to get rid of the mailbox.
