Ok ! this is the problem :) there *is* a mailbox format/type that's called
MailDir. What you want to create is a mbox mailbox. MailDir (and MH)
creation at the moment is not done in balsa. (in fact, as it is in current
cvs balsa should crash if you try to remove that mailbox - ops :))

anyway, creating a mailbox inside a dir didn't work for me either. the
mailbox file is placed on the correct path but the mailbox apears on the
root of the mbox tree. this is confusing and must atented too imho.
balsa expects mailboxs inside mail/ to 'appear' not to be created via the
new->mailbox function. new-> should be used to add mboxes out of the mail/
any options on this issue ?
