Chapter 15. Mail > Train Mail to find junk more accurately

Train Mail to find junk more accurately

You can train Mail to be more accurate in identifying junk:

1.
From the Mail menu, choose “Preferences….”

2.
Check the box to “Enable Junk Mail filtering.”

3.
From the options titled “When Junk Mail arrives,” choose “Leave it in my Inbox, but indicate it is Junk Mail (Training).”

4.
When you receive a new email message, check to see if Mail has correctly identified it.

  • If the new message is unwanted junk mail, but Mail did not mark it as such: Single-click the message, then click the “Junk” icon in the toolbar to mark it as junk mail.

    Or from the Message menu, choose “Mark,” then from the submenu choose “As Junk Mail.”

    Or press Command Shift J.

  • If Mail incorrectly identifies a message as junk mail, correct it: Select the message incorrectly marked and notice the “Junk” icon in the toolbar has changed to “Not Junk.” Click the “Not Junk” icon to correctly identify the message.

5.
Continue training Mail in this way for a couple of weeks, or until most incoming messages seem to be correctly identified.
