Spam filter in default mailbox - how to access via OE?

From what I understand, the Plus.Net has a spam filter which defaults to delivering all 'flagged' spam e-mails to a SPAM folder which can be viewed via Webmail - when logging to the default/postmaster Mailbox in my Plus.Net user domain.

Often I'm unable to log to Webmail Plus.Net (partly because its useless in replying e-mails without HTML codes messing up my e-replies as seen by some, but not all, of my e-mail reciepents - but that's another story).

Is there a way I could view this SPAM folder whilst using OutlookExpress (OE) on my home PC - other than adjusting the SPAM filters to send all flagged emails to my Postmaster e-mailbox, not using the 'SPAM folder' in Webmail anymore?

Hope someone can help me?!

Ciao, Andrew

You should be able to, but you need to change the connection method from POP3 to IMAP. You should be able to do this in the "Accounts" preferences, specifically under "E-Mail Accounts".

What you need to do is change the incoming server from POP3 to IMAP and use imap.plus.net instead of mail.plus.net

You should then be able to see your IMAP folders, including the Spam folder.
