That is the wrong way to solve that problem. What you need to do is go to the
folder Properties and uncheck 'Scan for new mail'.

That is not how subscribed folders normally behave. On an IMAP server you can
have folders which can only contain sub-folders and not messages, but this is
unrelated to subscribed folders. Seems like a server problem.
