You may want to consider changing your paradigm a bit and instead of 
using physical mailboxes for groups like friends and lists, you use 
smart mailboxes. You may find that this gives you even more flexibility 
and control over your mail streams. I am talking from experience of 
using POP with Eudora for many many many years and switching to IMAP and 
MailMate a few years ago.
