Too many folders for iMap acct on my Mail.app

Too many folders for iMap acct on my Mail.app

OK folks, when you configure a GMAIL acct in your Mail.app, you can go on the server and select ONLY the folders you want to show up in iMap on your own mail.app. Is there a way to do this with Comcast? Currently for just one account I have: INBOX, CHATS, CONTACTS, DELETED MESSAGES, DRAFTS, EMAILED CONTACTS, JUNK, SENT, SENT MESSAGES, TRASH. This is all in a separate section under the normal main inbox, drafts, sent, trash etc for this account. I would like to get rid of the CHAT, CONTACTS, DRAFTS, EMAILED CONTACTS, JUNK, SENT MESSAGES (I SUPPOSED I HAVE TO KEEP THE 'SENT' AND 'TRASH' THO) Where to configure this?

I read the thread but it refers to turning off the folders at the server level which Comcast offers NO PLACE TO DO. I can do it with Earthlink accts and GMail but NOT Comcast. Thanks anyway
