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:
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 10.0.0.0/8, 192.168.0.0/16 and 172.16.0.0/12 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)
