If you put

user_pref("mail.check_all_imap_folders_for_new", true);

in your .mozilla/default/prefs.js Mozilla knows to check each IMAP 
folder for new messages. You'll have to shutdown Mozilla before adding 
that line because otherwise Mozilla overwrites it the next start! I am 
using Mozilla mail with cyrus on Windows and Linux for years and 
...hmm... never saw that problem ! Have that problem only with Outlook 
and there I know that it is about Outlook opening a new imap connection 
for each folder it checks messages in which mozilla does differently!
