Junk Mail Filter Question

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
When setting the junk-mail filter in Mail.app to Automatic does that mean it no longer "learns" like in Training mode?

And could someone please explain briefly how the filter works. It seems to me, that the junk-mail filter is not too clever. Is content also examined or only the headers?

    [quote] When you?re satisfied that you and the filter are on the same page, checking the Automatic option sends everything the filter identifies straight to a junk mail folder ...<hr></blockquote>


    [quote] Wenn Sie den Eindruck haben, dass Sie den Filter auf das gewünschte Niveau eingestellt haben, können Sie die Option für die automatische Bearbeitung auswählen. <hr></blockquote>

    does that help ?

    oh, and as far as I know, no-one except apple knows exactly how the filter works.
