Mozilla Thunderbird Junk mail filter feature
Mozilla Thunderbird’s well known junk mail feature has been updated to keep on ahead of spam. Every e-mail you accepted goes over the Mozilla Thunderbird’s junk mail filters. Every time you need to mark messages as spam, Mozilla Thunderbird 'learns' and improves its filtering so you can spend more time reading only the mails that are required. Mozilla Thunderbird can also use your mail provider’s spam filters to keep junk mail out of your inbox.
