Well, luckily after some intense searching (and waking up ;D) I found
a conflict in my postfix settings that was my fault when I setup the
system on my then upgraded OS.

Tried Opera as my imap client but it was horrifically slow. I wasnt
using 10.x at the time so I might try again. Evolution I wasnt pleased
with the spam control. TB really is good at that.
