    When using alpine to save an email from an IMAP inbox to a local folder the following errors may be reported:

    • Message to save shrank!
    • There is possible data corruption, check the results.
    These errors happen when the IMAP server is not reporting the correct message sizes.

    In many cases it is safe to ignore the errors, but please double check that your messages really are saving to the local folders correctly.
