Nothing is being marked as Junk in my Mail.app (Version 2.0.5 746/746.2).

In the preferences I've got Enable Junk Mail Filtering checked.
I've got Move to the Junk mailbox selected.

These are all checked as well:
Sender of message is in my Address Book
Sender of message is in my Previous Recipients
Trust junk mail headers sent by my ISP

I'm not getting many because my ISP takes most of them out. But I'm still getting several. I select them and click "Junk" and they go to the junk folder. But Mail doesn't seem to be recognizing them on its own – and it should. These are really obvious things.

Anybody have any ideas? I've seen several different posts here, but none of them seem to be quite the same problem or they have dozens of others.

    Try using the Junk Mail reset feature.

    This will reset all Junk Mail "learned" settings but the Junk Mail filter learns quickly and you can leave Junk Mail set to automatic when doing so.

    That seemed to do it. And actually the third piece of junk that came through was marked and moved. Very strange that it didn't work from the beginning.

    I had also found one thread here where somebody had suggested that I would have to mark two to three thousand pieces before it would work. Glad that wasn't right!
