Thanks Michael,

That worked perfectly, although I had to do it on the whole IMAP folder
because on the aaa folder "check for new folders" was grayed out.

Why is this necessary, and how do I know when it needs to be done? I'm
a little concerned if I don't know/remember specific subfolders, I
might lose messages, especially if on Claws-Mail I delete a folder that
*seems* to have nothing in it.
