It doesn't make sense to waste the user's time with a message that is definitely spam.  Yet TB currently makes users examine each spam message.  I have to go to the spam folder created by GMail.  Then it recognizes spam and moves it to my local folders spam folder.  Then I have to visit that folder to finally get rid of the spam.

I would very much prefer that TB didn't even tell me about spam messages with a score past 90% (ui preference?)  It should check GMail's folder for me and squelch the message.  As is, TB might as well not have any built-in spam fighting features.

Note: To do this right, each IMAP account needs to have the user tell TB which folder is the spam folder unless TB can check for names like "Junk" and "Spam".

is this gmail specific/only?
if so, it needs to be on the gmail meta bug.
