Sorry - having posted I found the answer in 'More Like This'. It seems that emails in local folders will not be deleted if I trash the email account. Apologies

That's correct - if you delete a POP account, you lose all built-in mailboxes (inbox, sent, drafts). Deleting an IMAP account doesn't lose your inbox mail, since it's on the server, but if your Sent mail is set not to sync, you may lose that.
On My Mac mailboxes are not affected either way.
