My original message was vague; my apologies. The Fedora list messages
were not being put into the "Bulk Mail" folder. Rather, they were
being flagged with a little "flame" symbol in the inbox table of
contents, and between the message header and the message body.
Clicking the "Not Junk" button clears that flame symbol, but it
reappears again shortly after. Also, not all fedora list messages are
flagged with the flame symbol; but most are. I see no pattern as to
which are and which are not.

I tried that. No change; same behavior. It also doesn't matter when
I set the filter to be run. I checked for other user filters; there
are none. I have several e-mail accounts in Thunderbird, but this
problem shows up only for Fedora list messages, and only in the one
e-mail account that I use for the Fedora list. If I recall correctly,
this problem started showing up in late spring. Is anyone else seeing
this behavior? Is there something in the Fedora list message headers
that is bugging Thunderbird's spam-checking code, and can be
adjusted? This seems to not be a Thunderbird issue and not a Fedora
issue, but a Fedora list issue.
Try this: remove the filter completely and close the list of
Then, reopen the list and create a new filter, giving it a different
name and typing in the email address from scratch instead of using
Copy/Paste. It sounds a tad heavy-handed, but there's a possibility
that there's a non-printing character stuck in there that's fscking
Thank-you Joe. I tried what you suggested. No change. I also tried
deleting *all* the filters, exiting Thunderbird, and re-launching
Thunderbird. Still the same behavior. But it sure seemed like a good
I raised this issue because it is unique to the Fedora list, though I
experience the problem in both Fedora-21 and Windows-7. I gather from
everyone else's silence that I'm the only person experiencing the
problem. If I really am the only person affected, we can drop this;
it's just a rather minor nuisance.
