Otherwise you can cook up a recipe using procmail, i.e.:

* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes
mail/Junk\ E-mail

in the users .procmailrc would do the trick.

Problem with your setup is that since they're *still* using POP3,  
they'd have to check using webmail or IMAP in order to "see" the "Junk  
E-mail" folder.
