By default there should only be one maildir resource.
It is being created as a requirement of the mail dispatcher agent and operates 
on $HOME/.local/share/local-mail

There was a bug in one of the earlier 4.4 versions (IIRC) that made the 
maildispatcher not see the resource it had created so it continue to create 
new ones.

You should be able to remove them by running

kcmshell4 kcm_akonadi



As a rule of thumb there is one resource per distinct storage location, e.g. 
one vcard resource per multi contact vcard file, one maildir resource per 
maildir tree (operating on the selected directory and all its subdirectories, 
i.e. not one resource be subdirectory).
