This seems to be possible if you're comfortable editing XML by hand.
At least, I've tried it myself and there seem to be no side-effects.

Find the file folderlist.xml (in ~/.sylpheed-2.0 on Unix, I don't know
where to find it on Windows), and move the <folder>....</folder> blocks
into the order you want.  Don't change the "account_id" fields because
these have to agree with the contents of other config files as well.

Make a backup first, obviously!  Ideally back up the entire Sylpheed
configuration directory.

Hope that helps,
