Hi, this is Michael Callahan “Doctor File Finder” and welcome back to our special Butterscotch.com ten Part Series on Thunderbird.
In this segment, we’re going to look briefly at junk mail. Thunderbird does a pretty good job of handling junk mail, so here on Thunderbird we’ll click tools, and go down here to where it says, “Run junk mail controls on folder” and say that Thunderbird automatically detects incoming message that appear to be junk also known as spam. Message that Thunderbird thinks are junk will display a junk icon.
At first, you must train Thunderbird to identify junk mail by using the junk toolbar button to mark messages as junk or not junk. Once Thunderbird is correctly identifying junk mail, you can use the Junk Mail Controls to automatically move incoming Junk mails at the Junk folder. So, I’ll say OK. You see, Thunderbird has said, “This mail is junk” well, it isn’t so then I’ll click, this is not junk.
You see everywhere it puts the flame icon, it’s indicating that Thunderbird thinks it is junk so the way you train Thunderbird is to say. “This is not junk” if these were junk I could highlight it and click junk, and then Thunderbird would have learned that that type of email or an email from that source is indeed junk mail.
So, this way to a gradual process, Thunderbird learns what is junk and what is not, and it’s very simple just a couple of mouse clicks. And when you do that you’re teaching Thunderbird how to handle any junk mail that comes in and Thunderbird gets to be very, very good.
This is having junk mail in the Thunderbird. Keep in mind this is a multiple part series and be sure to watch all ten parts.
