New to IMAP - multiple nested Inboxes

OK, what have I done wrong?
Have switched from Orange to PlusNet, POP to IMAP and Outlook to Thunderbird in three fell swoops.
Surprisingly, bearing in mind my level of IT expertise, things have gone pretty well.
My only "weird thing I can't figure how I've done it or how to fix it" issue is that my phone and PC have two entirely separate ( it seems ) sets of Inboxes and Deleted Mail boxes ( both on the IMAP server, I know the Local Folders are meant to be separate )
The more I delete them, the more they come back. All the nested Inboxes are empty and their folder name appears in italics, if that's any clue.
All I want is 1 INBOX, 1 DRAFTS folder, 1 OUTBOX, 1 SENT and 1 JUNK!
How do I do itHuh
