Thanks Billie, I did that, but am confused whether to move to a folder
or delete, of the two choices. If I choose to delete, do I lose the
learning protection? I chose the other option to go to a folder, in
case that was necessary to have the filter work properly, but I actually
would prefer deleting them if they are still remembered as junk. I hope
I am making myself clear. Thanks friend.
