Yup, finally tracked that down!
The "Sent" folder and missing folders added via telnet
problem has been resolved. For the future, noobs
please note: If you click on "Sent" in TBird and get:
"The current command did not succeed. The mail server
responded: Mailbox doesn't exist: Sent." then you got
to add the folder manually via telnet:

telnet server 143
x login username pass
x create Sent

And THEN SUBSCRIBE to that via File->Subscribe.

I'll try that patch to automate folder creation
(thanks!). I'll also check in TBird's cfg file -
perhaps something there needs enabling, so mebbe I
won't need to patch.

I'm now running 1.0.14 but I'll compile the latest
dovecot when I create a install package. Also got
Getmail to work with minimal hassle (need to still
figure out how to maintain the GMail label structure
on my local IMAP)
Phew! Thanks!!
