This was not a problem of subscription but a problem of cyclic update
the folder content.

By default NO folder is checked besides the inbox folder (and the
seleted one if your server support the IDLE imap command) AFAIK.

In the old kmail1 days I had to recreate the index files every now and
then (about every 2 years) but I never lost mails. After doing similar
stuff to kmail2 (deleting the akonadi DB) I lost hundreds of mails (this
is fixed in the meantime afaik) but the good feeling is lost. I don't
know if I can still trust kmail2 and the mail handling.
For me it will take another two versions to trust kmail2 for mail handling.
