Virus scanner has detected a virus in my tb junk folder and removed the file, leaving junk.msf behind.
I've sofar failed to get a new, blank junk folder back into my local folders (using POP3 only).

How can I get a new junk folder?

Reproducible: Always

Mhm. Not really sure- and I couldn't find an answer on that page.

I'm not talking about the problem of recovering data but simply of getting junk control functionality working again.

1) my junk file/folder has been deleted by virus scanner and is not recoverable
2) restarting tb does not restore that folder, i.e. does not create a new one

So- how can I convince tb to create a new, blank junk folder to make the junk controls functional again? The workaround I've used this time is to create a new profile and copy the junk folder files from that one into my main profile.
Create a new folder call it Junk
then point to that folder as being the junk folder in junk settings
restart Tb and voila
