When the inbox folder in the user's mail database become corrupted, the solution is to replace the database design (using the convert command) with a modified template without the inbox folder, and then replacing back the database template with the correct one.

This action allows repopulate the inbox folder with the lost messages.

The convert command should allow to remove the inbox folder before replacing the design of the database, and then repopulating the folder.

cool idea! I've run into this with customized templates as well. Corrupt $Inboxes ... I wish there were just a nicer way to navigate them, even if it means splitting the collection of documents and hanging onto it separately from the rest of the folder / view design. But yeah, "convert" should get the feature under the hood before anybody else. I've had to write code to do this. Much better if convert could do it.
