Well they don't exist exactly.  The "feature" here is that IMAP allows
you to create a hierarchy without creating the folders in said
hierarchy. You can see this by creating a new folder called
"level1.level2.level3" (assuming that '.' is your divider).  You will
see that folder 2 is a subfolder to folder 1 and folder 3 is a subfolder
to folder 2, even though only one new folder was created.
