[kdepim-users] Creating directory folders with kmail (disconnected IMAP)

is it possible to create directory folders using an disconnected IMAP client 
in kmail? I am using KMail version 1.9.10 (KDE 3.5.10) with a UW server and 
could only create file folders (i.e. for holding messages rather than 
folders). When I tested a regular (online) IMAP client against the same 
server, I was offered a prompt whether I wanted a folder to contain messages 
or folders. For the dimap account, a message folder was created automatically 
without any prompt. As a result, any attempt to create subfolders ended in 
error messages a la "Cannot create folder; authorization failed". This 
happened regardless of whether a folder was created online or offline. 

Is this a bug or a feature? Or is it a problem with a specific version/server 

Best regards from Germany,
