Let's say I have an account for fred at domain.net. I configure this
account to file all mail to it and sent from it to go into a
sub-folder of the inbox called "fred". This all works fine. With the
"advanced settings" section of "edit accounts...", I can also put
copies of posts in another folder if I wish. This works as well.
However, if I create a trash folder, separate from the default one, and
do exactly the same as I've done for mail copies, all deletes from the
"fred" folder go straight into the default waste folder and the new
trash folder remains empty. 

I don't know if that's any clearer but I tried. 

If this option, to define a special folder for deleted messages does
not work in the way I am using it, how is it meant to be used?
