how to train Mail as "not" junk
 
Hi,
Hope this isn't redundant....

A lot of my emails go to the junk folder. When I click "not junk" it doesn't move them and the next time that person emails, it still goes to junk.

How do I train imail to recognize something as "not" junk. I have a filter in place to identify real junk mail. Just can't seem to get it to get smarter.

Imail ? Maybe you mean Mail.app ?

Just put it back into training mode via Mail.app's preferences.

Or by clicking on Advanced, you can tweak the Junk rules.

(See attached screenshots)

junk mail
 
Thanks for the info. Yes I did mean Mail.app. But why does it not recognize the "not junk" after I have clicked on a message to tell it is okay? Or will it do so with the training mode? Eventually, i would like to have the junk mail go right into the junk box? Is that possible?

It takes a while to train . It depends on how much mail you get.
I personally use a 3rd party app called Spamsieve which works well with Leopard (Spamsieve also needs some junk to train with to begin with)

still having "training" issues
 
Okay,
I have been using the junk training mode for a while now. But the Junk still comes to my inbox (although now it is highlighted a different color) and nothing goes to my junk box. Any thoughts?
Should I switch to Entourage? (not that I really want to)

Wow, I went to read reviews of Spamsieve and it sounds remarkable. I am not inundated with spam, so $30 seems a little steep. (there's a lot of stuff I need to buy after making the switch to Mac, so I have to pick and choose.) So, I am hoping I can get mail to do the job. But....if I were going to buy a spam filter, that would be the one.
