What I did in my client was use the option "Show all folders (subscribed
and unsubscribed)", and then from there I chose "Subscribe" on the ones
I wanted.

Actually, I don't remember now whether I explicitly selected Subscribe
on the Ham/Spam folders, or I just started using them after selecting
to show all folders.

But either way, it has been working for me.

(Also, in addition to setting that thing up, you'll probably want to
tune your ~/.public/.forward file and put an Exim filter specification
in there, which simply discards messages with spam score above certain
level (no benefit from saving obvious spam). The instructions for this
are on the wiki, or you can also look up my ~docelic/.public/.forward).
