Most likely its because Evolution only displays folders which you have 
subscribed to.  When you create them via Evolution, it probably 
subscribed you to them as well.   When you create them outside of 
Evolution, you'll have to explicitly subscribe to them via some IMAP 
client (Evolution, imtest, etc).
