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.

In this case, only one logically valid choice exists, but others can be
clicked by mistake and lead to &quot;strange behaviour&quot;
