It would be a blessing to have one's own "not scam" list built up. When one clicks "not a scam," the address info should be recorded. If one has subscriptions from corporations, for instance, each sending would not be called a scam.

More than a blessing...

I would rank this closer to a necessity than a blessing. It's very frustrating to have to say over and over again that a given newsletter email is not a scam.

A solution would be easy to implement:

  • Is sender in the PAB or the NSAB (not-a-scam AB), or any other listed AB, for that matter, except the CAB?
  • If so, it's not a scam.
  • If not, give the scam warning/prompt.
  • If user says it's not a scam, add address to NSAB.
  • Just the opposite

    I've never had a problem with having to tell T-Bird something isn't a scam - they always have been (and end up in my junk folder anyway) ... MY problem is the (to me) blatantly obvious scams it doesn't catch -- I'd like a way (context menu item under "mark as" perhaps) to say something IS a scam

    I have to agree with the original poster: I receive several very legitimate newsletters that, for some reason, trigger the scam message. There really needs to be a whitelist. Rholton 13:35, 6 December 2006 (PST)

    Whilelist of IP addresses

    Thunderbird marks every message with an IP address in a link as possible scam. In many cases this makes no sense, especially for the reserved private subnets like, and which no sane router would route to the internet anyway. I've seen this causing the majority of my false positives. Mocking 11:33, 18 January 2007 (PST)
