I'm a newbie with Thunderbird, and am perplexed by the two Trash folders. So far my deleted mail goes always to the same one. Why do I need both? Can I not get rid of one. (I use POP.)

If the second Trash folder is in Thunderbird's Local Folders pseudo account, that's normal and is best left alone.

If it becomes too annoying you could configure the POP account to hide its folders and use the ones in Local Folders instead. See if you want to do that. However, its easier to just keep the Local Folders account non-expanded in the folder pane and ignore it.
