If you are using POP3, your folders are local.  IMAP folders are on the provider's server so those have to be created from scratch.  However, you can filter or make copies of any message/folder on your IMAP server into your local Sylpheed folders.

I'm not sure if that answers your question, but I gave it a shot.
