    4 These instructions specifically refer to Thunderbird/Icedove. If you are using a different email program, please refer to the [wiki:sa_filter_spam generic filter instructions] or [http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/thunderbird/ switch to Thunderbird].
    5 
    6 This how to was created using Icedove 1.5.
    7 
    8  1. Click File -> New -> Folder...
    9  1. Enter "detected-spam" as the name of your folder
    10  1. Click Tools -> Message Filters...
    11  1. Click New...
    12  1. For filter name enter "Detected Spam"
    13  1. Change "Subject" to "X-Spam-Flag"
    14  1. Change "Contains" to "Is"
    15  1. Enter "YES" in the box
    16  1. Under "Perform these action", leave "Move message to" as it is
    17  1. In the next field, select the "detected-spam" folder you just created
    18  1. Click OK
    19 
    20 Now, when a message comes in that our servers have detected as spam, it will be moved to your newly created detected-spam mail box. You should periodically check this box to ensure that legitimate messages are not getting accidentally tagged as spam.
     4As of summer 2015, all email that is detected as Spam by spamassassin is automatically moved to your "Spam" folder (on some email programs it may be called "Junk"). There is no need to setup a specific filter in Thunderbird to do this task.
