Note my experience: apparently there can only be one trash folder per
mailbox (whichever folder you define as type "trash" gets to be the
one, and the previous trash folder becomes a normal folder), but
thetrash folder can have subfolders and filter rules work well with
them. Maybe account defaults can work with trash subfolders too.
