I'm trying to decide if Thunderbird email will meet my particular needs as I'd like to switch from Outlook 2007. I'd like the only email that appears in my inbox to be from those addresses that are in my whitelist. I can see from the Thunderbird docs how to place an email address on the whitelist - this part looks good. I can see lots of stuff for training the junk filter. However, can I simply specify that everything goes to the junk folder unless it's in the whitelist? Thanks.

You can place an email list in the address book and then create a Message Filter that will move any message that does not come from an entry in the address book to the Junk folder.
