getting rid of local folders in Kontact 0.8

I've recently been persuaded to return to KDE ---- though it's the very likeable 3.2 version. I've switched to Kontact (and therefore KMail) from Sylpheed. I'm happy with the change but for one thing .....(there's always something...!)
I have my own imap server and it is more than enough for all my email needs. Unfortunately, KMail insists on showing "Local Folders" in the mail folder tree. This is not a problem *BUT* other users on my system are easily confused. In Sylpheed, it was a simple task to remove a mail folder --- but in Kontact Kmail there isn't an obvious option to get rid of these annoying "Local Folders" -- anyone know where the "off" switch is??
