From the FAQ:

=======================================================================
Q. Couldn't create [INBOX.Ops/foo/bar]: NO Invalid mailbox name:
INBOX.Ops/foo/bar

Example:
sep1=/
sep2=.

imapsync revert each separator automaticaly.

a) All / character coming from host1 are converted to . (convert the separator)
b) All . character coming from host1 are converted to / (to avoid
intermediate unwanted folder creation).

Sometimes the sep1 character is not valid on host2 (character "/" usualy)

R. Try :

  --regextrans2 's,/,X,g'

It'll convert / character to X
Choose X as you wish: _ or SEP or
any string (including the empty string).
=======================================================================
