I just installed Thunderbird on 2 different machines. The junk mail settings window is too large. On my newest machine with the largest monitor, it worked fine, however, on the smaller monitor, I find the OK & Cancel buttons are NOT VISIBLE, & the window can not be moved enough to see these buttons! Therefore after repeatedly setting junk settings for mail,and nothing happening, I realized that these buttons existed. If that is the case, all you have to do is hit enter after clicking on the settings you desire. Otherwise, the junk filters will not work at all. This may clear up a lot of the complaints about junk filters not working. Again, after you activate the junk mail filter, you must either click on the OK button or hit the enter key or these settings will not take effect. This may sound vague, but I spent a day pulling my hair out trying to make this work, because the OK, Cancel buttons were not VISIBLE! Keep up the good work, this program still blows outlook express away!
