I watch the exim/procmail logs on the server and note that evolution
doesn't yet know about new mail in those folders. When I visit folders
that should have new messages, it then tells me about them. For some
folders, it seems to work (notably, the evolution mailing list). Ones
that don't seem to work well are my Sent-from/* and Sent-to/*.
But you're hitting a limitation of the IMAP protocol here. It has no way (apart from a just-expired experimental rfc) of informing clients of any changes to any folder outside the currently selected one.
Which is why we have to do some stupid/slow send/receive hacks.
Send/Receive doesn't seem to do much of anything (anymore) for IMAP. In
1.4, it very clearly checked each folder (that is, it displayed a
message about each folder it was visiting).
I have "automatically check for new mail every X minutes" set to 5.
I have "check for new mail in all folders" set as well.
I have filters turned off, and I have disabled "show only subscribed
folders" (though I have them all subscribed for thunderbird in windows).
My current workaround is to exit evolution and start it up. At startup,
it seems to find everything just fine.

I haven't yet run it from the commandline. But I will do it when I get a

this isn't exactly the same but is close enough:
