Thank-you Rick. I tried those things, both in Fedora and in Windows.
After doing those things, I completely exited Thunderbird and
re-launched. No change! Thunderbird keeps on flagging most messages
from this group, and only messages from this group, as junk! ...even
after I click the "Not Junk" button or use "Message > Mark > As Not
Sorry it didn't work. To be honest, that was a shotgun approach to the
problem. It's worked for me before on some things but since I'm not
having the same issue as you, it's hard to make suggestions.
Looking at Thunderbird's website, make sure that you open messages that
are NOT marked as junk and press the upper case "J" (not junk). This
helps train Thunderbird to recognize non-junk messages.
Have a look at this link:
specifically the "Training the junk filter" section.
