Well, I had the same problem and a colleague pointed me to this cockeyed 
black-is-white TB config setting:
Under Account Settings, Server Settings, Server Settings, Advanced, 
*UN*click "Server supports folders that contain sub-folders and 
messages".  Then you can create sub-folders.  Doesn't make any sense at 
all....but then it's Monday and the Red Queen is everywhere spreading 
the joys of enhanced entropy.......

pick-proof locks, one of those braces that goes from the lock to the 
floor, and bars on the windows.... ==== Stewart Dean, Unix System Admin,
