Windows 7: rename Junk E-mail in Outlook 2007

rename Junk E-mail in Outlook 2007

I have an annoying problem with Outlook, in that I cannot rename the default Junk folder. I need this because the e-mail server's junk folder is called simply "Junk", whereas Outlook calls it "Junk E-mails". Eset Endpoint automatically moves spams/virused e-mails to "Junk E-mails" instead of "Junk". The consequence is that spamassassin doesn't automatically learn to filter out these e-mails, as the e-mails are not in the 'right' folder, i.e. in "Junk".

Any ideas?
I already know that I could set Eset to move junk e-mails to another folder (i.e. "Junk"), but I'd like to do it somehow from Outlook.

It would be easier just to make a new folder called Junk. Just right click on the folder area and select new folder. you can create in inside your junk emails folder if you want.

It doesn't make any sense. This makes it even more complicated than the solution I've already thought of, that is to say, it's much easier to simply tell endpoint to place junk e-mails where I want it to, i.e. "Junk". The problem is that I don't know how to automate it. I don't want to do it manually for each computer. I do have eset remote admin, but that doesn't have much to do with this forum. So endpoint, by default, moves the junk e-mail to the default junk folder of Outlook. I don't understand why Outlook is so idiotic that it doesn't allow the user to change the default junk folder, but that's another story.
