I continue to receive emails from myself that I did not send.  Spam emails that are sent from myself, and even when I click junk, I still get these spam emails. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open email client
2.Email receives current emails
3.Click on junk for the email that is to be sent to junk
4.Later on, another email comes up that was sent from myself
I'm unsure what you want.
Someone sends you spam emails with a faked sender address (your own in this case).
What is now the problem ?

The problem is that the spoof is unlike the normal spoofs.  I junk the said spoof, yet I continue to get the same emails because it is 'from myself'.  I junk it again, and yet later on I will get another from myself. So the junk selction is not working when you get spoofs from yourself.  I hope I made it a little more clear this time : )
What Thunderbird version do you use?
Did you active the option "Do not mark mail as junk if the sender is in" in the account settings (Tools->Account Settings) for Personal Address Book or Collected Addresses? Is your own mail address maybe in one of those two lists (check in address book)?
Reporter could answer to comment #3, please?
