Yes it is possible. You can create a local mailbox somewhere on your
spinning drive, and go to "Edit Accounts -> Edit -> Advance -> Put
deleted messages in".
However I do not see how this will solve your problem... Now a message
is moved from your nvme device to the spinning device when you delete
it. In the trash folder you can shred it, i.e. safe deletion. However
on your nvme device it has never been safely deleted, hence the bits
and bytes of it are still floating around to be read by NSA ;)
