That doesn't work for me.
In my case the parent of Inbox is "grover",
the name of the dovecot server (running CentOS-6.2).
If I right-click on grover,
I am offered a menu of options, but these do not include "New subfolder"
(even greyed out).
The ones that are not greyed out are:
  Update folder and its subfolders [I tried that]
  Find Messages
  Copy Folder to
  Archive Folder
  Assign Shortcut
  Folder Properties
  Manage Local Subscriptions

If instead I left-click on File in the top bar (while highlighting "grover") 
  Add Folder is greyed out.  
If I hightlight Inbox, for example,
  File=>Add Folder is not greyed out,
but if I add a folder here it is a sub-folder of Inbox.

Sorry, that was a typo for Fedora-16.
