Normally it wouldn't be a problem. Can you manually move a junk mail message there? If not, then I wouldn't expect a filter or junk mail control to be able to.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Yahoo

"UID Fetch Server error

This error can occur with Yahoo IMAP accounts. It seems to mainly occur when there is a problem fetching the contents of a message in the Spam, Bulk Mail or Trash folder. Deleting the folders contents, emptying the trash, and compacting the folders works around the problem." You typically don't want to do that with a inbox folder, though. IMHO Yahoo in general is a poor choice of a email provider. They have lots of temporary problems (that get fixed by an admin within a day or two) and Thunderbird seems to have lots of interoperability problems with them. I don't expect that situation to change. Yahoo being bought by Verizon doesn't help either.

hi
i guess yahoo work better in pop3 ,i'm correct?
yes i can't change my imap account without creating a new one and deleting the old

This tutorial will show you how to configure a new account for POP access (rather than IMAP). An existing IMAP account cannot be converted. Instructions for deleting it are at the end of this article.
