You should not be using 2.0 beta6. You should be using 2.0.11 or later.
You can have folders containing both messages and folders under mbox.
But I say again, you should not be using 2.0 beta6. You should be using
2.0.11 or later.

Early 2.0.x supposedly stable versions had many many problems which
means you should under no circumstances attempt to use them, LET ALONE
2.0 beta versions.
You really should upgrade to 2.0.<latest> (currently 2.0.11).
I will have zero sympathy for whining along the lines of:
- "Well that's what's in my distro"
- "My employer only allows bona fide distro packages"
Did I mention you should be using 2.0.11 or later? I can't remember.
Anyway, you should be using 2.0.11 or later.
