    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.
