(just a few guesses, really):

Perhaps your IMAP prefix in the client isn't set correctly? Most figure
it out correctly by themselves, but if you've manually set it it could
be incorrect.

Also - are you using virtual domains? I don't use them myself, but from
list traffic it looks like mailboxes in virtual domains must be named

Try using imtest to thrash things out, and only once that works try a
normal mail client.
