Delete unwanted inbox when only using Local Folders in Thunderbird

I have a number of pop3 accounts and all my emails go to the inbox or sent items within Local Folders in Thunderbird. None of my email addresses has their own named inbox, except for one which was created along with a corresponding 'deleted' items folder, when I just added a completely new pop3 account. Unfortunately, there appears to be no obvious method of removing this unwanted additional inbox and deleted items folder. Copies & Folders in the account settings only refers to sending messages, and is already configured to place items in Local Folders. I can find no specific options relating to received messages.

Does anyone know of a solution to my problem? Thanks.
