Is this not a duplicate of
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/evolution/+bug/9870 ?

I'm reluctant to mark 37878 as a dupe, as others may feel they are
separate problems, but from reading 9870, it seems to me that spam
filtering has been mangled in Evolution for years, this isn't something
new.

For example,
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/evolution/+bug/48872 also
concerns mangling. To me, these seem to be symptons of the same
underlying problem: Evolution's spam filter doesn't work out of the box,
cannot be trained without counter-intuitive actions (mark as spam, then
ham), and does not cooperate with user addins (which shouldn't be
necessary, IMHO).

There's also
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/evolution/+bug/62192, which
seems to come from this same underlying problem.

Would the problem get more or less attention and TLC if these bugs were
all marked dupe of a 2+ year old high importance confirmed bug?
