No. Dovecot supports this fine with Maildirs. Your directory must be 
named .something and have the usual Maildir layout.

That's strange - I use Thunderbird 0.7.2 (under Windows) and I've never 
seen that message before.

Do you have an unusual option turned on? Or are you using a really old

using Thunderbird for quite a while.
