How do I force my email client (eM Client) to stop downloading emails in the spam folder of my Gmail account?

Is there a way to permanently delete spam from the server before they get sent to my spam folder in my email client? If so, can I do this in Gmail's settings?

If your email client is set up with IMAP, you can uncheck the "Show in IMAP" button on the Gmail Label Settings Page, and it should stop.
