[Bug 373244] [NEW] Request for enhancement: account-specific treatment of junk messages

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

Source package: thunderbird, package version
Ubuntu release: Hardy Heron, v8.04

This is more a request for enhancement, rather than a bug report. I
currently use Thunderbird to access 3 email accounts. I would like to
use one set of adaptive learning algorithms to detect junk email, but be
able to control what happens with incoming detected junk depending upon
the account it's detected upon.

For instance, for junk coming into my <myisp.com> account, I'd like to
move it into the Junk folder under that account. For junk coming into my
Gmail account, I'd like to move it into the [GMail]->Spam folder. For
the third email account, I'd like to automatically just delete them.

As far as I've been able to determine, setting a destination folder for
junk messages on one account forces the same destination folder to be
used on ALL accounts, which is not what I want to do.

Thanks for your consideration!
