    Is there a way to have the stock mail app split my Yahoo inbox and spam folders? Just got the M8 (online pictures don't do the Verizon red version justice, btw!) and noticed a ton of spam in my main inbox, including dated from before moving phones. When looking around, I noticed I have no separate spam/bulk folder in the stock app like my last phone. It appears those emails are being retrieved from the server, but inserted into the phone's general inbox. Any way to split them like they should, and perhaps skip syncing the spam all together?

    I'd like to know this also. Really hate having to delete all the junk mail that is automatically going into the spam folder on my server, but is still being pushed to my phone.

    I know that's an option, but I'd prefer not to install additional apps if there's a work around for the stock equivalents.

    Ok, I figured this out. Go into the mail app and pick an account you want to change. Then go to settings > account settings. At the top, change protocol from "pop" to "imap." Then scroll down to the server box and change it to " imap.mail.yahoo.com". Click next to get to the outbound settings. I didn't have to change anything there and click next again. It'll notify you that the changes require the account to be deleted and added back. Ok that and let it re-sync the new account. You should now only see the inbox mail in the main screen, and going to settings > Folder should list all of your folders, including any custom folders you have. You'll have to do this for each Yahoo account you have.

    For reference:
