I realize I'm coming late to this discussion but is your copy of Mozilla perhaps set to mark some email matching a set of criteria as read. That's what I used to do with Netscape to get rid of spam before better tools and spam detection began. I found it safer than automatically deleting email or moving most stuff to a junk folder.
