FYI I've narrowed this down to a QtSql/sqlite problem.

- By logging all the SQL operations from QMailStore, I can see that
  QMailStore always sets the status field for newly received messages to
  a value that includes the QMailMessage::Incoming flag.  But if I copy
  the database to my laptop and look at it with sqlitebrowser, I see
  newly received messages with status = 0.

  The missing QMailMessage::Incoming flag then accounts for SMSs being
  shown as "Draft Message" and for emails being listed with the name of
  the recipient instead of the sender.

- If I revert just qtopiacore/qt/src/sql and
  qtopiacore/qt/src/3rdparty/sqlite back to v4.7.4-qtmoko-v46, but keep
  the rest of Qt at v4.8.3-qtmoko-v49, the problem disappears.

- If I move qtopiacore/qt/src/sql and qtopiacore/qt/src/3rdparty/sqlite
  forward to e2e62bc, the problem comes back again.  e2e62bc is just
  after the sqlite code was upgraded to

There's still a way to go on this, but I thought worth sharing in case
you or anyone else sees problems that might be SQL-related.
