Newsletter marked as Scam
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3 GTB5 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) Build Identifier: version 22.214.171.124 (20090812) I subscribed to a newsletter from the PC World magazine. The newsletter is always marked "Thunderbird thinks this message might be an email scam". It is not. Except for clicking on the "Not a Scam" button evry time, how can I teach Thunderbird that it is not a scam? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Message send from: PC World Windows News & Tips <firstname.lastname@example.org> Actual Results: Subscribe to the newsletter. Expected Results: No false scam message alerts.
'Scam' messages are not based on a learning algorithm like junk messages, but on a heuristic anlysis of the message. For instance when it contains a link to a URL with an ipaddress that is not in your own network. http://www.hyperborea.org/journal/archives/2005/10/28/thunderbird-scam-detection/ Note that the message stays visible (not moved to a different folder), it only tries to warn you that the content of the message might be harmful.
