Most likely is one or more corrupted DBX files.
Couple ways to go.

1) Regenerate the corrupted DBX files in the existing Identity.

2) Create a New Identity and Import mail and Contacts from the old Identity.

Both ways will require running a mail extraction program to recover messages from the damaged DBX files.
