Not sure if this is any help, but my ~/Maildir has the directories new,
tmp, and cur (standard for maildir setup) and courier treats that as
Inbox.  I can create subdirectories from an imap client.  I can also
create them manually, provided they are a subdirectory of ~/Maildir and
their name begins with a period.

I would guess you need to tell Exim to deliver to ~/Maildir not

If you created ~/Maildir/.Inbox courier would show the last .Inbox as a
subdirectory of Inbox in your client.
