Allow to mark all mails in a folder and sub folder as junk/not junk, with the
right-click menu

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Right click on a folder, you don't get the option to mark all mail as junk/not junk
Actual Results:  
Nothing

Expected Results:  
Would be nice to allow to mark all email in a folder and sub folders as NOT JUNK as 

I have so much i just don't get to mark each valid email that comes in as not
junk, which i think you have to do for the junk statistics thingy.

I do mark the junk ones that aren't caught by my existing statistics.

So, I have folders of mail that is valid, whether there by manually moving or
filters set up. I would like to make the junk stastics better by marking all
those emails as not junk.

I can't do this on a folder level.

You don't have to mark messages as not junk. They're not "not junk" by default.

If TB makes a mistake and marks a legit mail as junk, only then you have to mark
it as "not junk".

If somebody could verify, that would be great !

I read somewhere this has to be done, though admittantly the doc probably wasn't
on the moz website as the docs there are lacking.

My belief upon reading this was asserted by seeing a "Mark as Not Junk" option
on normal mail. Perhaps this should not be shown if the email is already not
junk.....

thanks

You actually do have to mark non-junk message as not junk for the junk filters
to work properly, nevertheless, I really don't see a need for this feature.

All you need to do is select all the messages in a folder (Ctrl+A or Alt+A) and
then mark them as junk using one of these methods:

I think the solution is in comment 3, select all and mark as .. As this action is rather rare, if one still wants it as a button to "mark all as junk", that is more appropriate to place in an extension. IMHO

Also, as this is kinda old, version 1.0.6 , 2005, I would think some version passed over it with no intention of changing it. 

I would mark it as "won't fix", but I'll just WFM .. If not appropriate, please reopen by changing that back.
