My suggestion would be to post your question in the »All Things Macintosh forum since the problem is obviously in your IMac setup, not with the AT&T/Yahoo! email service itself.
My guess is that the devices that properly use the folders are accessing your email using IMAP, but you are using POP3 on the IMac.
