Struggling with aliases

I am using Office 365 Home and Win10.

I have been happily using aliases for years but in the fallout from a difficult Win 10 project I have got into a bit of a muddle. I have a primary account (imap) A and two alias accounts Y & Z both of which are set to logon to A. Initially I set up Y & Z as imap but found that I could not unsubscribe all the folders. If I unsubscribe on one account it unsubscribes all accounts. I don't know if that is correct, however.

I then set up Y & Z as pop3 and set them not to process receipts. That works fine except that sent items from alias accounts never appear in A the account they are actually sent from. They don't appear in the web mail at my ISP. They do appear in the alias account in outlook. I am not clear whether the mail server is not handling it correctly or I am expecting too much or am totally muddled.

Any suggestions to enable me to unsubscribe imap folders BY ACCOUNT or to get sent messages into the primary account or any general unmuddling gratefully received.

with thanks
