one of the Sylpheed-Claws' devel said:
"The "IMAP server directory" (on the Receive tab in acoount
settings) parameter can help in this case. Put all mailboxes
under the same directory (e.g. ~/Mail) and enter the name of
that directory (relative to home, e.g. Mail in this case) as the
IMAP server directory."
