The thing is when thunderbird is used, only one user is training the

Further in my procedure given above, you are using two steps - gmail
spam filtering and then filtering in thunderbird. Works like a charm.
Does gmail use baysian filtering? Perhaps you don't get much. I have

I have yet to establish what system my ISP uses. The emails come through
with email headings such as:
X-RBL-Warning-Info: warn.bl.kundenserver.de says: Dynamic IP Addresses
But I don't know what puts the headings in.
