In the Mailboxes Window, I right-click a mailbox folder like "Drafts" in order to set it as the folder to use for drafts. There's the context menu "Set Mailbox as". It has second level submenus for each special folder choice (Drafts for Account, Trash for Account, Sent for Account); which then have third level submenus for each account available.

This third submenu is confusing for IMAP/POP because all mailbox folders in an IMAP/POP account will be related to this very account, not to another one. The choice option is redundant. And it gets error-prone if a user needs to set up lots of folders accross mulitple accounts. Pleae see the attachment

I believe it would be better if the third submenu (account selection) was only available for local mailboxes. It would be usual to need a local "Sent" folder alongside a POP account, for example.
