Some IMAP servers hang the folder structure below Inbox, rather than
parallel to it. This is a server configuration decision and isn't under
the user's control.

Of course the OP hasn't said if he's using an IMAP server or local mail,
so I've no idea if this is pertinent here. In any case, it shouldn't *in
itself* cause the reported behaviour.

One thing to verify: Evo only checks for new mail in folders other than
Inbox if you specifically configure it to do so. The easiest way is to
right-click on the folder, select Properties, and check the box marked
"Always check for new mail in this folder".
