Yes, it's incorrectly marking some messages in the middle of a thread
(binaries and text discussions alike). It needs more training.
Avoid using the "Remove Read" command, because it'll remove any messages
that the Junk filter marked -- even if you've manually unmarked them.
I think the best solution is to put up with it for the short-term while you
train it. Eventually it should be accuurate enough that you can change the
filter action from "highlight" to "delete".
You might want to turn on its "Do not override" option and move it to the
top of the "*" filters, so you can be sure you're seeing all the messages
that it would mark incorrectly.
I've been turning off threading temporarily and sorting by Score, to make
it easier to see & unmark any mismarked messages from the middle of a
thread. Then I turn threading back on and sort by subject so I can read
the newsgroup normally. It's a bit annoying, but I expect it'll be worth
it in the long run. Already its accuracy seems to be improving.
The new Junk filter also seems to be doing a good job of catching all the
posts by the resident troll in a certain non-Mac newsgroup, as well as all
the replies to his messages. Previously I had only been able to filter out
the troll's own messages, as his Message-ID's are not unique enough for a
References filter to be much good. >> Stay informed about: MTNW 3.4 Junk Mail
