I set up one mailbox with one folder per account in the inbox. The
method I tried for using separate trash folders for each account was

Configuration ==> Edit Accounts
Select mail account and "edit".
Account ==> Advanced
"Put deleted messages in", #mh/Mailbox/trash/Graham. 
The following similar entry works:
"Put sent messages in", #mh/Mailbox/inbox/Graham

Just to make the process seem even closer to "sent", I've just tried
asking for deleted messages to be put in a new folder,
#mh/Mailbox/inbox/Graham/trash, but that also failed to make a
difference with deleted messages still going to the general trash
