Junk Mail Classification Turned On in Trunk Builds

Wednesday November 13th, 2002

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)."

From what I gathered, reading the rough "todo" list, classification is done *after* the normal message filters. So a "Move to Folder" if "Junk Status" wouldn't work, since it wouldn't be classified until later.

That's my take anyway -- there was discussion on the todo page about redundant code in that area, and I think some of it may be merged together, so who knows. I'd like to see this merged tightly with the regular filtering personally, but I think they're going a different route with this.
