Separating multiple accounts in Evolution

I have been a Mozilla Mail user for years. One of the things I like best about it is that it keeps each e-mail account completely separate from the others. Each account has its own inbox, sent items folder, and so on.

I just downloaded and installed Evolution because I want to be able to sync my Palm handheld with it. However, Evolution seems to put all mail from all POP accounts into a single inbox.

Is there a way to separate the accounts to that they can be dealt with individually?

I've been through the instruction file several times, and I can't figure out how to do it. There appears to be a way to FILTER incoming messages, and likely that will drop the messages into different folders. However, anyone that has used Mozilla Mail will know that this is not what I am looking for.

Unfortunately filtering seems to be the only way to seperate mail for different accounts in Evolution. A while ago I spent days looking for an alternative but found none, unless this has changed in recent versions.
