There should be only one entry, depending on message junk status (as it is true with toolbar icon). Having both entries seems to confuse some users. version 1.0+ (20050830) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
There is a reason for this: the message can have a third state, "unclassified." A better solution might be to disable one of the two Junk options if it doesn't apply to the current message(s).

I guess this could be duped as bug 273223 if we use the same context menu code.
Didn't know messages can be unclassified... But this leads me to another question: how do we know which messages are unclassified and which are marked as not junk? If we mark a message as junk, an icon appear under junk status. There should be an icon for unclassified messages as well. There's probably a lot of users (me included) that didn't read the manual and don't know about unclassified messages. Yes, I know we should read the manual, but still, current UI leads us to believe we only have two statuses: junk and not junk.

I'm pretty sure I've seen instructions on how to customize this so you *do* get a separate icon, altho you have to provide the icon. There may be skins that do this. Try posting a query on the newsgroups or Mozillazine.
I've read comments at 182386 - most people agree with what I've previously said. Too bad the decision was made contrary to what most people want. Anyway, this topic has alwady been covered, so there's no use discussing it again here, especially since we're a little away from the original subject.
