Folders are files in which you can archive mail besides 
INBOX. You can have as many folders as you like. For example,
I have folders for storing mail relating to the JDE, my work,
my church, my kid's school and so on. I can save mail either
manually or automatically. To save the current item, you simple
press s and vm prompts you to enter the name of a folder
in which to archive the mail; it can be an existing or a new
folder. Press A and vm saves all the mail whose To: From: CC:
etc. fields match regular expressions that you have previously
specified in your vm initialization file (.vm).

Yes, I got this working on both Emacs 20 and 21 several months
ago after many hours (I had to modify epop3 to get it working
on 21). However, I had the same problem of being prompted twice
for passwords. Setting up vm for leave on server was a matter
of seconds and the command for expunging mail from the server
is right on the INBOX folder menu.
