[Dovecot] Have inbox at the same place

Hello again,

I have an installation with dovecot and I am accessing it through
linux mint and thunderbird v3.0.10

As thunderbird "subscribes" to dovecot, it does the following :

  MyName at Mydomain.gr
  Local Folders
Local Folders
MyName at Mydomain.gr
  subfolder A
  Subfolder B
  Subfolder C
  Subfolder D
  Subfolder E
Local Folders

OK, I have to admit a have a couple of folders more than what I need.
But this is fine.
My problem is that *everything* is in its respective place (say,
*all* subfolders have their respective e-mail properly laid in there),
but the messages I keep on the inbox is the "Inbox" folder.

What I would like to have is my Inbox messages under (or *on*)
MyName at Mydomain.gr folder.

Also, trash mail goes to :

  MyName at Mydomain.gr
folder. Could this also be under the more generic MyName at Mydomain.gr
folder further down the tree ? (Hope you understand this :-)

The tree above is represented exactly as it looks like on thunderbird
(with the indentations and everthing).

The "dovecot -n" output follows :

    args: /etc/dovecot/passwd

    driver: static
    args: uid=vmail gid=vmail home=/home/vmail/%u
    driver: passwd

Is this possible ?
