This is a symptom of a folder not existing, but folders beneath it
existing. For example, I filter Debian Bug mails into
INBOX\Bugs\$BugNumber. There is no INBOX\Bugs folder, so it shows up

If you have a greyed out INBOX, then either you've made a mistake in
your config or perhaps there's an issue with the mailbox itself. Can you
access the maildir as a private namespace?
