I have just started using evolution (mostly because it can write to my

kind enough to answer them.

What is the purpose of the "On This Computer" mailbox? I assumed that it
would look at /var/mail but it doesn't (or does it and I'm just being
rubbish?) and if doesn't can I get rid of it?

It is evolution's local store.  It is the default location for pop and
locally delivered email.  It cannot be removed.

The default location? Whenever I add any account the default has always
been the e-mail address. But I've managed to get it to read my local mail
to there by changing the default location -- My e-mail address -- to the
"default" location -- "On This Computer". But it was in no way clear that
I would be able to do that.
I've noticed that evolution creates a "Junk" (virtual?) folder but I
haven't asked evolution not to check for spam so why does it create
that folder? Again can I get rid of it?

It cannot be removed.

That is... disappointing.
