no, you are seeing something different :-). You are trying to create a
Mailbox that already exists. Sometimes the server treats some special
folder names as case-insensitive and complains about duplicate names
(e.g. it considers Sent/sent to be the same folder).

Do you have a folder with different capitalization on that repository
