That is what I did and that is what I want. What you suggest would
lead to to much clutter for me and is one reason why another e-mailer I
tried, which forced me to use a separate mail-box per account was
rejected by me. 

What I want is for the "put deleted messages in . . ." option to work.
Seems like I'll have to raise a bug report for this as it seems from
the conversation here that it is a bug rather than a failure on my
part in configuring this correctly.
