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 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

the screenshot proves what we've been saying the entire time. you have
an IMAP account named "Mail", it appears in its own subtree. Yes, this
is how it is supposed to work.

is "imap" the same as a "local" or "pop3" account? no, hence the
different location.
