Does the Junk filter learn from unmarked Junk?
Authored by: rgray on Oct 27, '06 07:36:38AM
Wow. Thanks for the script. I was surprised that Apple did not include a "mark as Junk" action in the Rule editor. I consider this a bug, a fault. As a rule and applescript novice, please, would it be better to 'mark as junk' (ie. the script) before or after moving to the Junk folder. It seems to me that each sequence has different implications regarding the learning function... ???

My experience with the script and Tiger Mail has been that Mail reorders my actions, so it doesn't matter how you order them. For me, Mail always puts the AppleScript step last, regardless of where I put it. I have three steps for each spam-finding Rule: Move to Junk Folder, Set the Background Color, and run the "Set Junk Flag" script. And that's the order Mail will enforce, no matter what I do.

OK, thanks. I compiled the 'Mark as Junk' script and attached it as an action to the 'Image Spam' rule. We shall see... I will report..
