Junk folder not syncing

Is there any way to have the IMAP Junk E-mail sync without having to first click the folder? My server puts spam in the junk mail folder and unless it syncs, I have no way of knowing that new spam has shown up in that folder until I click it, then it syncs. I want it to sync each time it syncs the inbox.

Hi, what mail service are you using?

And I’m not sure if I understand the problematic, why do you want your client to sync junk mail? if you receive a lot of junk mail, it would generate more traffic and your regular emails would take longer to download since there would be a considerable amount of junk mail to be download before. If you have some important emails sorted as junk mail, you can always white list the domain or the mail address.

Thank you,
