Thunderbird SPAM FIlter trashing *everything*
 
Hello Folks,

I am certain I'm posting this in the wrong forum, but I couldn't find a more appropriate place for it.
So I apologize in advance.

I am running Thunderbird 17.0.6 on SuSE 12.3 Linux, and since day one I've had the damn issue that I can't stop the SPAM filter from putting 80-90% of my e-mails into the trash folder.
At first I tried to train the SPAM filter, when that didn't make a difference I disabled it, when that didn't work I setup an extra JUNK mail folder, so I could at least distinguish the SPAM mail from the truly trashed e-mails.
NOTHING worked and the damn thing just keeps marking most of my mails as SPAM and puts them straight away into the trash can.

I use this for business e-mail, so its starting to become a serious problem for me.
Anybody got any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

What do your Thunderbird filters look like (Tools menu item > Filters)?
Have you tried disabling them?

Seen this?

I deselected adaptive JunkMail Controls, deselected SPAM Assassin and deselected "Move Junk Mail to Folder <...>" for all accounts.

But nothing seems to be able to stop Thunderbird from trashing most of my mail the moment its received :-(

PS: I "trained" Thunderbird for over a month (with SPAM filters enabled), telling it to e.g. stop trashing the mails from my agency, but it made NO DIFFERENCE what-so-ever.
So that link you posted doesn't mention anything I didn't try already.

Bump.
Sorry, but I'm still looking for help with this.
