Hi,
Thunderbird insists on moving some of my non-junk mails to the junk folder. Is there a way of removing these items from the junk classification?
Thanks,
.... john

There should be a "not junk" button in place of the "junk" button.

Hi Grumpus,
Yes, I can right click on the individual Junk items, and choose not junk; but that doesn't seem to stop items, from same source, from landing in the Junk folder the next time they arrive.

Look at your junk log and see if the problem senders are still listed.
Maybe edit it. Hesitate to suggest a reset.

Found this using the Thunderbird Help:

Hi Gumpus,
Thanks for the link. I will start with resetting the training data, and go from there.
I'll let you know how it goes, if I remember ;>(

I would like to know how to remove the green check when I mistakenly click the junk status column.

Even if I reinstall the app, the junk status doesn't go back to the little dot icon for Google IMAP accounts.

I'm using the default junk settings in Thunderbird 91.

viewtopic.php?f=28&t=30643 has a perl script to dump out the training.dat contents

The bayes junk tool at https://web.archive.org/web/20070329230 ... ozdev.org/
used to be a good way to edit training data. Its a java based tool. I used it about a decade ago with no problems. I tried it again about a couple of years ago and I could view the tokens but had problems deleting specific ones. Its not clear if I was using too new a version of the JDK , the format had changed slightly in training.dat or I was running into a bug.

I found https://github.com/losgehts/BayesJunkEditor which is java based and only four years old. It seems to be the successor to the old bayes junk tool. It won't remove the junk status for a message but hopefully should let you edit the training data.

Usually marking the message as junk again toggles the messages junk status. If it doesn't https://www.monperrus.net/martin/notes- ... d-msf-file claims the folders *.msf file contains x-spam-status fields. You could try deleting the *.msf file and restarting Thunderbird.
