No argument from me. Of course, I _do_ drop everything into a single inbox
because I have Fetchmail grabbing it. I'm not quite sure why I use
fetchmail anymore :-)
I don't do POP fetching from KMail, so I just went and checked. In fact,
it's no problem when creating a pop account to specify a new folder to drop
the mail in. It's simply that it defaults to the existing "inbox". I
suppose it has to default to somewhere, but I guess it makes more sense to
default it to creating a separate inbox for the account.
