Upstream comment:

"Hmm, ok... First of all, a quick workaround/solution. Please see the first few
comments of bug 213072 and especially bug 213072 comment 30, since the location
of the mail folders changed since the original report.

Deleteing the file ~/.evolution/mail/local/Inbox.ev-summary should solve this
"mismatch". At least for the Inbox. All files named like your Evo mail folders
with an extension of .ev-summary are indexing files only. You can safely remove
them (with Evo closed first), and they will be recreated next time you start
Evo. May take a while for large folders.

Note: In the example above, the "Inbox" named file holds your mails. Do not
touch this file.

Since you get the same message for your "Ubuntu Bugzilla" folder: Based on your
description above, the relevant indexing file should be inside the "Inbox.sbd"
dir. Feel free to contact me directly, if you are unsure how to work around
this by the discussions above. Sebastien should know where to find me. ;)"
