I see.
I was asking because, previously, the structure of the mail folders
didn't put everything under Inbox, and i wanted to preserve that. And
actually, another IMAP server that i've been playing with (Dovecot)
cannot store messages in a folder that already has subfolders, so i was
kinda worried about not being able to use Inbox in Cyrus if i create
subfolders in it (looks like i was wrong?).

How about other "important" folders, such as Sent, Draft, etc? Do these
need to be created as Inbox subfolders as well?

I'm probably paying too much attention to the way Evolution creates the
local folders structure, with Inbox, Sent, Draft, Trash, etc. at top
level, and allowing for other folders to be created at the same level.
