Weirdness. I'll have to pay closer attention to precisely where in the list of all the folders and files my mail is sorted into that causes the problem to reoccur, but for the time being, anyone else experiencing this, can try the same and likely get back in again. the Evo folks are aware of the issue and a patch is in the works. Hopefully it comes down the pipeline soon.
