I am using multiple accounts too.  Each account comes in a separate folder.
Go to Kontact > Tools > Configure e-mail. From there, you need to configure three items 
for each new account:
     *  identity > add  > yournewaddress at;
     *  accounts > receiving > configure here your pop3 settings for 
yournewaddress at;
     *  accounts > sending > configure here your smtp pop 3 settings for 
yournewaddress at
When doing so, you will see appearing your new account in a folder at the same level as 
your already existing accounts and and your local folders.
