IMAP accounts will place a toplevel tree node in the folder-tree under
which the folders will appear. The name is whatever you gave the account
(by default it uses the email address)

what do you mean you changed the default location?

I mean that when Not Zed said that the default location for pop and local
accounts was "On This Computer" it wasn't the the default for me,

uhhh.... for pop3 and "Local Delivery", this is where all mail gets
delivered by default (unless you setup filters to move it elsewhere)
OK since no one seems to believe me on this I've taken some screenshots
http://fommil.homeunix.org/~mick/evo/ I realise that I could easily have
changed the text before taking the screen grab but I hope that you will
take me on my word or at least follow what I've done and get the same

 And that I could
change this location to "On This Computer" if I wanted, but I didn't know
that you could and it's not obvious that you can have 2 accounts with the
same name.

It is a bug if 2 accounts have the same name, you should not do this.

It no longer works I must have done something crazy for it to work the
first time :/ go figure

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.

it doesn't create the folder, it's a virtual folder that doesn't
actually exist on the server.

Indeed that's why I said "(virtual?) folder". But, because the folder is
virtual it seems to me to be wasteful of evolution to create this folder
when I have told it not to check for spam. Moreover if I actually have a
real Junk folder it is hidden by evolutions virtual folder.

wasteful how? if you don't open it, there's no added processing.

I never knew that it never updated virtual folders till you clicked on
them, how does it know that there is new spam if it doesn't check each
file in the rest of the folders until you click the trash folder?
