I have server-side spam/junk/scam/phishing detection, so I've turned off all Thunderbird junk-mail tests. I upgraded to Thunderbird 1.5RC2, and Thunderbird now indicates "Thunderbird thinks this message might be an email scam." All my junk mail controls are disabled. Either scam detection doesn't check the junk mail settings, there is a separate scam detection setting I can't find, or scam detection can't be disabled.

Thanks. Sorry I missed that. In the future, as "scam" and "junk mail" are semantically related, it would probably make sense to place their configuration information in a related area, or to refactor the scam/antivirus/junk mail configuration altogether.

Cheers,

Garret
