I haven't done that yet, but I plan to do so.  I wanted to see if it
was a known problem before I tried that.  The user did make a curious
discovery the other day.  There's a right-click menu item on his INBOX
that says `Show deleted messages'.  When he selected that, all his
missing messages showed up, but they were marked as unread, not
deleted.  Other IMAP clients have been showing those unread messages.
