Assign junk mail status without opening a message in Mail
Authored by: Han Solo on Apr 18, '03 11:07:25AM
Mail.app only updates its filter in training mode? Not according to Apple (Knowledge Base article #86190, updated 3/4/03):
In automatic mode, Mail will move messages to the Junk mailbox so they are out of your way and you can easily screen them. You should periodically review the messages in the Junk mailbox to make sure messages you care about are not being identified as junk. If a message is wrongly classified, click the Not Junk button. You should also periodically delete junk messages. Correcting misidentified messages and deleting junk messages improves Mail's ability to correctly detect junk mail.
So, no, you need not switch back to training mode to "teach" Mail.app about junk, and no, you need not view the message -- it need only be selected. Add the "Junk" button to the Toolbar of your Viewer Window (if it is not there already), and click that instead of viewing the message (using the above methods, such as pulling down the horizontal split window bar to the bottom of the Viewer Window to disable message viewing).
