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)."


#16 WONTFIX?

Why has the checkin of this type of Spam Filtering caused bug 71413 to be marked as WONTFIX?

The purpose of that bug was to enable a user to right click on incoming mail address and select "Block this Address" ( <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=71413> ).

I do not see how this Bayesian filter replaces the feature requested in that bug. If I classify a specific email as junk, does all mail from that sender then automatically get classified as junk too?
