[X Newbies] Apple Mail weirdness

I've noticed something similar - what I would refer to as 'phantom 
messages'.   I've  seen this with individual messages and messages that 
show up as duplicates.  The duplicates are interesting because there is 
usually one that will evaporate when I delete it (and the highlight bar 
jumps over the duplicate to the next message) and the second message 
will go to the trash when deleted.  Rebuilding the mailbox seems to get 
rid of this for a while.  The individual messages I've seen this happen 
to, for me at least, have all been ones that I have recently deleted.  
They reappear in the mailbox.  The second time I delete they evaporate 
which just seems like an updating issue.  OS 10.2.2
