what about junk mail?
Authored by: wibs on Jun 22, '04 08:42:00PM

I've been using a rule in Mail to redirect every message to gmail, but unfortunately I can't find a way to redirect only Not-Junk messages. Quite frankly I see no need for those to get passed along :). The best solution I have so far is a filter I set up within gmail to automatically trash messages with my mail server's SPAM flag in the subject, but the number the mail server catches really pales in comparison to the number that apple's Mail nabs.

Any ideas on how to do this?

As the last entry in each of your rules, set the action "Stop Evaluating Rules". Put the redirect as your last rule.

Oh, I also created a "MyJunkMail" rule that moves any mail marked as junkmail to Junk and to "Stop Evaluating Rules". You would think that the junk filter would do that, but it doesn't seem to.
