[Evolution] vFolder

I have been reading the vfolder thread with interest because despite
reading the help file on the vfolders, I must confess that I still
lacked a clear sense of what they do. So with my ignorance displayed,
perhaps I can ask a question to clarify the function of vfolders:

At present I have 21 folders in the Inbox tree (with several sub-folders
of those) and 3 vfolders viz. Important mail (local), unmatched and
unread mail (local). Are there other ways of doing this set up because
it seems like the vfolders have duplicates of my mail, except that in
the vfolders it is unsorted. However, if I delete something in the
vfolder, it gets deleted in the other sorted folder too. Even though I
am running on an old AMD K6-2 450MHz with some 192MB RAM, Evo takes a
long time (several seconds at least) to open/close or to repaint itself
when I use the Workspace switcher to move from one desktop to another,
as well as to open up a reply window or to read a new message (by
double-clicking on the message). My question is about whether using the
vfolders rather than the 'regular' folders would be a more pasimonous
use of resources and enable Evo to work a little faster.

Any ideas?
