Junk Mail Classification Turned On in Trunk Builds

In a posting to netscape.public.mozilla.mail-news, Dan Mosedale writes, "At the end of last week, I checked in code to turn on basic junk mail classification features in the trunk build. There's still lots of work left to do, but it's in a state where folks should feel free to start playing with it, and filing bugs in Bugzilla. See http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/spam.html for a short introduction to how it works, as well as credits (getting this up and running has been very much a group effort)."


#13 Mozilla Mail Sucks

The new Bayesian junk mail filters have made me give Mozilla Mail another go. The reason is that I get way too much spam and yes the junk filter works excelent. But since my default browser is Phoenix and my default email client was Outlook Express (and no I'm not satisfied with OE) it is really a pain to use MM. The UI is unintuitive, the new mail rich text editor cripled and the context menus only repeat the toolbars when it should provide contextual information that is hidden deep in the menu structure.

This just makes me want Thunderbird even more. I just cant wait for a usable mail and news application that supports IMAP, working junk mail filters and an intuitive UI.
