Hi,

I want to configure Mail so only I'll  will Decide which mail is junk (not Mail itself), but once I have decided that a mail is a junk,  Mail automatically will passed the same folloing mails to junk.

 

Thanks,

    This is from Mail's help.  Mail learns your criteria about what junk mail is.  You always have the flexibility to override, but with time, Mail learns well.

     

    Mark messages as junk or not junk#

    Mail analyzes incoming messages and identifies which ones are likely to be junk mail. It highlights these messages in color (by default, in brown) and adds a banner across the top of the message.

    • If you receive a message that Mail incorrectly marked as junk, click Not Junk in the banner. Or click the Not Junk icon (looks like a thumbs up) in the Mail toolbar.
    • If you receive a message that Mail failed to identify as junk, select the message and click the Junk icon (looks like a thumbs down) in the Mail toolbar.

    When you mark messages, Mail updates its junk mail database, so it can identify junk mail more accurately.

    If you do View > Show Mailbox List from Mail's menu, you will see the Junk mailbox on the left side along with all your standard mailboxes.  When a message arrives in your junk mail, you will see a badge icon (a white number in a red circle) indicating how many unread messages you have there.

    Preferences > Junk Mail. Uncheck "Move it to the Junk mailbox". Or, if you prefer, uncheck "Enable junk mail filtering".

    You are deciding, but as you do so, you are teaching your junk mail filter about how you decide so it can follow your preferences.
