Yes, it's safe. The directory is there, it's just not a mailbox. The
easiest way to fix this is to create it as a mailbox. So, reproducing
your steps, it would look like this:
localhost> cm user.ross.a.b
localhost> cm user.ross.a.c
localhost> cm user.ross.a.d
localhost> cm user.ross.a
This is actually one of the steps I had to do when migrating from an
mbox-based system, as none of the migration tools had an option to turn
parent folders into mailboxes.
