    Hi, is there a way I can automatically mark spam as read?

    I'd like to do this to avoid getting notified about spam mail.

    I'd need also a way to avoid the small "new mail" pop up notification in
    the right low corner of the screen about spam. To do this: how can I set
    TB to automatically download mail from server (thus checking if spam or
    not and deleting/marking it read in the case) BEFORE showing the new
    mail icon popup?

    Thanks

    Stefano

    By using the JMC (Junk Mail Controls) available in TB you can eliminate
    most (up to 99.9% of spam) from your inbox.

    However, that occurs AFTER you download the mail, not before. To do what
    you want to do, you must have a server side program, or one that mimics
    server side programs, and TB is a client side program.

    If the spam is caught by TB and moved to the Junk folder, then the new
    message notification is suppressed locally (inbox not marked as
    containing unread)

    Yep, got it.
    Actually, by setting "Automatically Download Mail" (dunno the exact name
    in english version) i don't get notification popup for spam.

    Another thing I like I came up with, is creating another fake accunt for
    spam, with a different inbox and such. I move all spam to THAT account
    inbox and I leave it collapsed. This way I can totally banish the spam
    from my sight.

    Last thing I wonder: is there a way I can move that fake account down,
    after the local folders I use, instead that having it on the top?

    thnx

    You dont need the fake account, simply a Junk folder, which can be
    anywhere within your folders.

    I dont suggest re-directiing mail to an inbox, which is treated
    differently than other folders (JMC runs on inboxes automatically for
    example). Having a fake account doesnt do much in this instance.

    Yes but with a junk mail folder the mail will appear to be read, and it
    annoys me to see something in bold (i have many folders for miling
    lists) when there's only spam.

    On the other account i have disabled everything of course... then i
    leave it collapsed and i'm not aware of how much spam i get.

    No, not at all!

    Dont open the folder/account you put Junk in, and you wont see it at
    all! You wont be aware of how much spam you get, because, unless you
    open it up, you cant see it! Put it in a subfolder of Local Folders, or
    even within a fake account, and you will never have to open it up.
