In a case of brain fade, I forgot that the hierarchy separator character in this IMAP server isn't slash and I wasn't noticing that in the LIST and LSUB output all the other hierarchical mailboxes had a different delimiter character.  Manually TELNETting in and renaming them to use the correct hierarchy delimiter caused MM to see them.  I'm not sure if it's a bug that MM ignores a mailbox whose name contains a slash on a server where slash isn't the hierarchy delimiter.

Sounds like it could be a bug. Most servers use a slash as a hierarchy delimiter. I'm actually unsure what MailMate does in this case, but based on memory I think this could actually be hard to fix given how MailMate works internally. I'm a bit surprised it hasn't come up before.
