I still cannot create a sub-folder using Thunderbird. But when I create 
it manually and them move the mbox files it recognizes it.

For instance:


Is what I *WAS* having problems seeing.

Unfortunatley I don't have anything in my logs about it.
This would happend anytime I would click on any other mailbox besides Inbox.
What I think was happening was that Thunderbird still had those 
mailboxes in it's memory so they were listed, but Dovecot did not know 
about those mbox files since I had not made the change in dovecot.conf 
yet for it to know about ~/mail.

Everything seems to be working fine now.
Thanks for the responses everyone!
