I did so (with leafpad) after stopping Sylpheed, and this seemed quite easy.
The result was that nothing seemed to have changed after reopening SylPheed?
I checked what happened, and found that after restaarting Sylpheed the modified file was use as ~/.sylpheed-2.0/folderlist.xml.bak and the original file was put in place ~/.sylpheed-2.0/folderlist.xml
The folder I like to move to the bottom is the main 'mh' folder, I only use imap folders.
