My understanding of Michael's description is different -- IIUC, when he
says "account-local" and "on every account, like move to trash", I
think his "account" actually means "mailbox", so that means, in details:

- He would like to define, on every mailbox, a specially-named folder;
  for example, "reminders"; so that there's a #mh/Mail/reminders and
  also a #imap/Acct/reminders and a #mh/OtherBox/reminders if he has
  the respective mailboxes

- The he'd like to have an action "make reminder", which moves a
  message from its current folder to the "reminders" folder in the same
  mailbox, rather than just one "global" reminders folder, which is
  what is described in Paul's answer.

To the best of my knowledge, there is currently no such functionality
in Claws Mail. I suspect one may be able  to create it using the Python
or Perl plug-ins, but that would require writing some code. 

I also seem to recall someone asking about custom folder types, which
seems to be related, but I can't locate that at the moment, and as far
as I recall, that doesn't exist either.
