Re: Thunderbird: how to automatically check spam folder?

Wed, 16 May 2018 08:04:41 -0300, _Balaco ocalaB_:

In a mail account at Yahoo, sometimes bulk messages appear in their folder. But in Thunderbird, which is what I use to check my account, most of the time, it is hard to see they arrived. I have to click on the "Bulk Mail" folder. The number of unread messages of inbox folder is automatically updated, with the configured interval.

Is there a way to make that Bulk Mail folder also updated in a time interval?

Try right-clicking the folder, then choose "Properties". On the "General" tab you should see an option:

  [x] When getting new messages for this account, always check this folder

Make sure it's checked.

I have another mail account where all folders are inbox subfolders (and I did not create folders outside inbox, which should be possible). In this account, the folder used by TB for bulk has its message count updated everytime I unfold the folder list in TB left panel. This is just a reference to compare to my problem, I never saw this in other accounts my whole life.
