The fixing of bug 181394 enables the 'Move incoming messages determined to be junk mail to' checkbox in the Junk Mail Controls dialogue. Messages are not yet moved if Junk Mail Controls are manually run.

I've done a fair amount of training of both spam and not spam. When I first enabled the tool I had a folder of collected several thousands of spam messages from a few weeks before the feature was available (anticipating the feature landing) and I had about 15,000 not spam messages (all my folders of catagorized mail). I trained on those messages and I haven't had a single false positive in almost two months of use. I get a few hundred messages a day and the filters are up to about 92-93% success at catching spam.
