My upstream e-mail provider (Tormail) has a horrendous false-positive rate. There is also no webmail address book thingy that can whitelist stuff. Almost all of my friends' mail goes into the junk folder - in fact, there might be a bug as I don't recall anything going into the regular inbox except e-mails to myself!

Thunderbird has its own spam filter. Can I tell it to automatically redirect mails going into the junk folder into the inbox, and then do it's own spam filtering?

  • If Thunderbird has the ability to filter email and Thunderbird pulls emails marked as spam by your email provider. You can indeed setup a filter to move all mail to a specific folder. You could also use say Google Mail, Outlook, Yahoo to POP3 which should place all recieved email together – Ramhound Jun 14 '13 at 18:50
