i would make a backup of the folders, delete it by cyradm dm (check if the folders in filesystem are gone too then) and recreate it by cyradm cm, copy the mail files into it, make shure the access rights fit your cyrus needs and make a reconstruct -r -f over the folders(!). reconstruct -r -f usually must give something out, but depending from your setup the correct path might be user/A (user/A* should work too for reconstruct -r -f) - for now it sound’s a bit like a Cyrus IMAP „path“ problem too. Check i.e. with cyradm lm or cyradm lam the naming conventions of other (working) directories/folders.

If that doesn’t help, make sure the mailbox user has all access rights to that folders by cyradm lam.

To make sure that you did not see any „old stuff“ (cached or similar) in your imap client, use temporarily another imap client without any caching - i.e. mutt -f imap://user@imaphost or a webmailer or similar.
