Just a couple of thoughts...

1.)  If you have restored some stuff from backups or something,
you might have to use the -f and -r options to reconstruct.  You
didn't say which options you used.

2.)  Make sure the clients have subscribed to the folders you
can't see.  (e.g. in Thunderbird, click on "File|Subscribe",
choose the account and then make sure all the folders are

Hope that helps.
