I did the default upgrade and see a similar problem. When mail auto designates a piece of mail as "junk" sometimes it goes to the junk box and other times it does not. When I manually label mail as junk it always is moved to the junk box. I do notice that the mail that does not auto move to the junk box is not labeled junk until I open the message. Once the message is open, mail automatically labels it junk, it just does not move it to the junk folder.
Same here. Nothing is moving into the Junk Mail folder as it should be.

1 Work IMAP Account
2 IMAP GMail Accounts
Copied Tiger's ~/Library/Mail back to ~/Library/Mail before starting Mail 3.
Was in Training Mode after it did it's thing. Left it that way for a few days to retrain a bit. Changed mail settings out of training mode and back to Move Junk Mail to Junk Mail folder. Junk mail is marked in the Mail Application. Web .Mac mail has also stopped marking mail as Junk. I mark it as junk and it still goes nowhere.
This is not working for me either, as of a week or two ago. Junk mail is marked as junk, but stays in my inbox, regardless of my junk mail settings. I have it set to move junk to the junk folder, but Mail simply refuses to do so. I tried changing the setting, closing preferences, opening prefs and changing it back, but that does not help either.
Sadly this is the least of my problems with Mail in Leopard. I've had nothing but problems with it so far and I'm getting really frustrated. I'm running out of patience and ideas and it may simply be time to wipe out all my mailboxes and preferences, reimport all my old mail and start over from scratch again.
I am having this same issue, on 3 Leopard installs, all connected to the same account via IMAP.
They were all set up from scratch, no importing of mail.
Junk mail comes in and sits in the mailbox, and only when highlighted or double clicked it is marked as junk. Yet after that it does not move to the Junk box, but just stays put.
In a word, Apple Mail's junk mail filtering is broken.

are there any news on this topic?
I (and some of my colleges) have the same Problem - spam emails are recognized and marked as junk only when I'm 'reading' them. They also are not moved to the junk folder automatically. The workaround I 've found to move the junk email to the junk folder is to select all messages and then execute a "Apply Rules".
Found in another thread suggestion to reset the junk mail settings:
All I did was hit the reset button -- I hadn't noticed it there before. It resets the training db, and I was loathe to lose all my training, but it actually seems to have made it start working again -- new junk mail comes in, and goes straight to the junk folder and I don't see it in my inbox.
I had this same problem on one of my machines after upgrading to leopard. I was able to fix this by changing:
Mail -> Preferences -> Accounts -> Advanced -> Keep Message for Off-line Viewing
Only Messages I've Read
All Messages and Their Attachments
I think that the first option was changed in a recent version of mail to never download the messages before reading (preventing them from being flaged as Junk).
I hope this helps, others (I know I was pulling my hair out in frustration over this problem for a long time...).
