1. Create an Address Book for Spam

  • If you haven't already, create an address book named "Spam" in Thunderbird.
  • Add the email addresses of the senders you want to filter out.

2. Create a Folder for Spam

  • If you haven't already, create a new folder named "Spam" or any other name you prefer.

3. Set Up a Message Filter

  1. Go to Tools > Message Filters.
  2. Click New to create a new filter.
  3. Name your filter, e.g., "Move to Spam Folder".
  4. Under the section For incoming messages that:, choose Match any of the following.
  5. Add a condition: From is in my address book Spam.
  6. Under the section Perform these actions:, select Move Message to and then choose the "Spam" folder you created earlier.
  7. Click OK to save the filter.

4. Test the Filter

  • Send a test email from one of the addresses in the "Spam" address book to see if it gets moved to the "Spam" folder automatically.

Note: Ensure you check the Spam folder occasionally to ensure no legitimate emails are being incorrectly filtered. Adjust the filter or address book as necessary.
