Just another idea...
In KMail, I can have multiple "identities." That is, I can use KMail to check
multiple accounts. Each one can have separate username/password to login to
the mail server. You can have them all dump to one inbox, or (I think) keep
them as separate folders. I'm sure that Evolution could do something
similar. The data would all be stored under one user, but they probably
wouldn't care since they don't want separate user accounts anyway. :-)
