I had the same problem with Thunderbird (both on FreeBSD and Windows)
and I blamed Mozilla. But then I was told that Courier-IMAP is not very
standards-compliant IMAP implementation and tried Dovecot (mail/dovecot)
instead. It turned out that Courier was the one to blame. With Dovecot
Thunderbird was showing mail like it should. FWIW, I don't have any
problems with it in mutt+imap either.
