Ive set up an account on iOS using my MDD-hosted mail server addresses (IMAP connection). Its working fine.

One cosmetic oddity, no doubt my bad. Please train me. In the iOS Mail app I see *two* folders displayed, both named Junk. FWIW, one has the usual Junk icon, that being, a tray with an X; and the other has the generic folder icon. I logged into my email on cPanel and see no odd setup, though Id be glad to place one if thatd make a cosmetic difference.

Any hints as to what might be going on?

One is 'local' to the phone and one is on the server.  You can go into the settings and set the 'local' one to point at the on-server one [settings on the phone].
