It is supposed to be possible(though maybe not recommended).  Did you follow a particular set of instructions?

Here's a good writeup:

which uses mfcmapi.

As Ben said (its not recommended) you can do this in MFCMAPI. Since it is a default folder there is a very good possibility this is going to break, and this is also not supportable by MSFT (I have seen this break before).

Basically do not rename the default folders that come with a mailbox, unless you want problems down the road.
