I'm using a local maildir directory with no problems.
In the browse dialogue, just press "Open" when the maildir directory you
want is highlighted. I know you instinctively want to double click it,
but that will take you down into the directory. Resist the urge :-)
Alternatively, just type in the right path and click OK, bypassing the
browse facility altogether.
If that doesn't work, get back to us...

Not unless the mailer you used to create the maildir was doing something
