Here are my comments from bug #180153 http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=180153#c15 .... The "coalescer"? Is that the message filters section ... b/c the code was just reversed to perform Junk Mail analysis AFTER message filters are applied .. How would you perform a Junk Mail move dynamically from a Message Filter (NOT Junk Mail controls) if they status isnt changed until AFTER the filters are applied ??? Or am I understanding the "coalescer" incorrect here? Otherwise, cant you just check for the existance of "Junk Mail" folder on commit (OK) IF the "Junk Mail" folder in <directory> is selected from the junk mail controls ??? If not exist, then create ... if exist, move along :) ??? And, then we just accept the fact that you can only MOVE junk mail dynamically (immediately as it is labelled) directly from the Junk Mail controls, and the message filters move can only be performed from a *Run Now* ...
Would there be a way to designate the Junk Mail folder? In my filters, I have a lot of filters set up to move mail matching various criteria that I have set to a folder I created called "Junk". If I use this Junk Mail Control feature, I'd like to be able to tell the application that "Junk Mail" folder = "Junk" folder and not create a "Junk Mail" folder. This way, I don't have to change my filters.
I changed the junkmail.js code around and am having no problems with the AUTO Creation of Junk Mail folder when it detects junk mail for the first time. I tested this out on a POP account. Only issue was that it created a "JUNK" folder, Not the expected "JUNK MAIL" folder. (Used build 2002112504) ... I would expect the folder to use the special Junk Mail icon (but I cld open another bug on that if needed)
Not ready for use yet, but it's a start. More soon.
taking from dmose. I talked with dmose and bienvenu about where they were going with this. I'll be working on this, so that we can enable the "move junk to folder" part of the junk mail feature.

I haven't tested this. just trying some things out (as suggested by dmose and bienvenu). if some of this code looks familiar, it's the nsMsgCopy code cleaned up, and moved around.
talked to bienvenu, the junk folder flag is staying and he has some other suggestions. he also set me straight on some other things. new patch coming later today, we should be able to turn on the move UI soon.

I've checked in my fix. it has r/sr=bienvenu it has I'm going to mark this bug fixed, but there are scenarios (and loose ends) I still need to take care of. I'll elaborate with what works, and what needs to be fixed, and log some spin off bugs.

it wuld be cool to have a empty junk menu items ala empty trash
Is this new "junk" folder treated like a special folder in the same way as DRAFTS or SENT? The reason for asking : i have several installs (multiple multi-boot computers) and i keep my junk mail so i can easily (re)train my spam recognizer for each installation. The way it is now, each time i have to manually mark all messages in the IMAP "junk" folder as being junk. Perhaps it's safe to assume that everything in the "junk" folder is junk and therefore automagically marked as such. That way all filters trained with the same IMAP "junk" folder exhibit the same recognition? Couldn't find this one yet.
Testing automatically creating the Junk mail folder when turning on Junk mail controls on Windows only at this time. New Profile one mail account: IMAP-Creates the folder immediately but doesn't mark it as special folder until you ping the server by collapse/expand the server or Get Msg. OK POP- Creates the folder immediately and marks it special. OK WebIMAP - Same as IMAP. OK AOLIMAP - Gives error that it can't create the folder - expected Maybe we should default to Local folder for this case, I'll write up a bug. New Profile 3 accounts IMAP, POP & POP: All accounts created the Junk folder as mentioned in single cases above. OK, for all accounts and special folders are listed in the same order for each account after server has been pinged. I have some spin off bugs regarding setting up the same IMAP account in a new profile. This bug is verified/fixed.
