This is irrelevant, whatever tool you are using to see the "type" of 
that file is wrong.

You didn't tell us where you're looking, so I can't be sure... But I 
suspect you're looking in the right place.
However with IMAP the mail can stay on the server, so unless you tell 
your MUA to download a copy locally you only see index files.
