Default Thunderbird Q

Tbird sends junk mail to the junk folder, but I much prefer that it blocks junk all together. Anybody knows how to make Tbird do that.

Looked around in the program but couldn't find an answer/option.

Thanks

well I don't have a Tbird but is there any message rules?
Dose your ISP have a webmail setting?
As for example My provider has webmail mail too if I need to acess my Email. then I can use it it also has a setting that can be set to delete junk mail. and never get any on the outlook express. just a few odd one that it dosent catch.
Maybe someone knows. see if there are any support for it or FAQ on the Tbird website.
Ps is this Linux version or windows?

Hi notsotechie, and thanks for the suggestion.

I'm not sure that will work as the ISP's mail doesn't know what's junk and what's not (I "trained" Tbird to do that).

I'm no expert in these matters so I could be wrong.

Thanks again.

You can get TB to put all mail it thinks is junk in the deleted folder, but that's not really going to get rid of it until you close TB (if you have it set to empty the deleted items on close) Personally I would want to have a look through it to check for any 'real' mail first.

I use also my ISP's webmail to filter out about 90% of the junk (and this very rarely catches anything that's not junk) I also use the 'trusted senders' list on this to make sure it lets through all 'real' mail from my known/trusted sources.

TB is excellent at catching about 80-90% of the remainder - I have been training it for some time now so this helps.

I tried using Outlook but the junk filter on this only caught about 10% of any junk - pile of ......Junk!
