My IMAP server uses maildir folders and TB has no problem with them.
The only thing I do find is that occasionally TB seems to forget to
refresh the folders.  I either have to click on the folder to request
a re-read, or if I think a lot of folders have changed it can be
quicker and easier to just close TB and re-start it.  OTOH, I leave it
running all night, and a "Get all messages" first thing in the morning
usually works fine.
