Hi !


Whenever you manually flag a message as "Junk" or "Not Junk", the Mail filters will learn from your command and better identify what you consider as SPAM.


There is no need to switch modes to take advantage of Mail's learning capabilities.


Let me know if this helps !

    Hi again!
    I tried to mark repeating similar incoming (sex) junks as such in automatic mode and it seems that the filter does not learn and catch this trash. Are you relly sure the learn mode is still on and resharping in automatic mode?
    Thanks for enlightening me.

    Thanks for updating us / me.
    That means in automatic mode if mails are marked manually as junk the filter gets sharper and sharper i understand now.
    Another one:
    I have a pretty good filter on my powerbook and want to transfer that very filter, eg. settings (or as we have learned matrix table) to my other machines. Is this possible?
    Even Mac press support Europe could not answer that one - though.
