Thanks, Peter. That worked a treat. I think where it had fallen down
before when I tried that method is that Balsa originally saw my
mkdir'ed directory, and even after I deleted it and told it to rescan,
etc, it wouldn't show it as a folder until I restarted Balsa.
Now I can keep things tidy, and find my new messages!
