Many thanks, Frank, for kindly considering my question. All my three email
accounts are IMAP ones, but only one of them displays the spam folder in
windows mail. The other two doesn't. I can see the spam folder listed in the
Show/Hide IMAP Folders window, but when I select it and click the "show"
buttom I get the message:
"Could not show Spam. The server refused to show it. The folder might
already shawn. Folder already subscribed."
