Setup Cyrus IMAP account on Thunderbird

I connected to Cyrus-IMAP server using Thunderbird. There's some problems on the first try :

  • All the folder reside under INBOX folder. Trying to move them up fails
  • The sending does not work, always hang with the message box informing that it can not save to Sent folder
I was in the middle of following some troubleshooting direction from this discussion when I see there's textbox labeled "IMAP Server Directory" in "Account Advanced Setting" dialog (Account Management > Server Setting > Advanced) . I input the annoying "INBOX" root folder mentioned above and surprise surprise, it makes the root folder go away. The sending is acting normally after it too.

Below is how the dialog looks like :
