First of all, I enjoyed both your articles, it's a great summary for newbies which I'll be sure to pass along. I do have a question, however.

When Mozilla (as well as your article) says it need to be trained as to which mail is NOT spam, does that actually mean you need to select non-junk messages and mark them non-junk again? I was under the impression it simply meant you have to be sure to re-classify messages that are incorrectly deemed junk. I'm not sure which is true, but I think either way it's a fairly confusing point and one which the Mozilla documentation should make clearer.
