Failing to reproduce file hierarchy locally

I've just discovered offlineimap and it seems to be just what I need.
However I am struggling to set it up as I want it.
My server (running postfix + dovecot) sets up a file hierarchy in my
home directory as follows:
ls -aF ~/Maildir
So new email goes into the topmost directory under new or cur, and if I
put things into the folder called .archive then they go
What I want to do is to have offlineimap create an identical hierarchy
on my laptop. However whatever I do, in terms of renaming etc makes no
difference. I tried the config recipe to remove INBOX but no change.
On the laptop I always get ls -aF Maildir
What settings do I need to mirror the file structure identically to
that on the server?
My current config
# Sample minimal config file. Copy this to ~/.offlineimaprc and edit to
# suit to get started fast.
accounts = Theory
metadata = ~/.offlineimap
localrepository = Local
remoterepository = Remote
type = Maildir
localfolders = ~/Maildir
type = IMAP
ssl = yes
remoteport = 993
remotehost = XXX.ac.uk
remoteuser = me
