I was deleting lot of trash from my inbox yesterday. When I opened
evolution today all the deleted messages are seen in Inbox. But the
messages do not open and an error message says "Unable to retrieve
message. Cannot get message 1544424296.3290_48541.SanthanDell from
folder /home/santhan/.local/share/evolution/mail/local:No such file or
when I go to the Trash directory all the expunged mails are shown but
when clicked again the same message above appeares. When i try to
expunge them from the trash a error message "Failed to expunge folder
"On This Computer:Trash". The reported error was "Error storing
"~/.local/share/evolution/mail/local/Sent (maildir)":cannot VACUUM from
within a transaction" is seen

it seems your folder summary has got out of sync with the disk content.
I've no idea how that could happen, especially with the On This
Try to close Evolution, move away
file (do not delete it, just in case you might need to return it back),
and then start Evolution. It will recreate the file, this time
reflecting the disk content.
