User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 when moz mailnews receives a new email, it first notifies the user that s/he has new mail, then checks for junk status and acts accordingly. This turn of events is incorrectly ordered. The system should first check for junk status. Those messages marked junk _should_NOT_ trigger new mail notification events. This is a more specific example of a more general feature request. Mail notification should be able to be made conditional. So, mail that gets hit by certain user-set filters should be allowed to set no new notification (this might best be done as an extension of the filter capabilities). Furthermore, separate icons/sounds should be able to be set for different accounts/filters. This is broadly speaking a single issue, though I guess it could be split into several bug filings. I will file issues separately if it is thought wise. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enable Mail Notification 2. Receive Junk Mail (if you don't have this problem, sign up for hotmail/yahoo account, use a hotmail/yahoo POP3 proxy program to get mozilla to check that mail) Actual Results: 3. Watch Mail notification icon popup for every porn, viagra, vacation, etc. ads that you receive when you could care less. Expected Results: Mail marked as junk should not trigger any alert to the user.
