I use Thunderbird with IMAP and do all junk mail checking/filtering server side, 
and filter all junk mail to a specific folder server side. As such I've disabled 
all features related to Thunderbirds adaptive junk mail filter. Since filtering 
is done server side, messages are not flagged as spam locally (with the trash 
can icon). 

Sometimes though, I need to view a message filtered to my spam folder. As not to 
fall victim of web bugs etc, I always flag these messages as junk before opening 
them in Thunderbird. Whenever I do this it seem as though Thunderbird downloads 
the complete body of the message before actually flagging the mail with the Junk 
status. This could potentially consume a lot of bandwidth (if flagging many/
large messages) and AFAIK this shouldn't be necessary with IMAP.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Deactivate addaptive junk mail filter
2. Mark messages as junk

Actual Results:  
Message body downloaded, message tagged as junk

Expected Results:  
Messages tagged as junk (without download of message body)

Please not that this applies to IMAP accounts.
