Hello, I have setup filters in thunderbird for automatic deleting SPAM-emails that contain words like "viagra" "sex" etc.

In rare cases these filters have a flase positive = deleting a non-SPAM-email caused by a keyword of the filter. The filter is setup as logic or-conditions if text contains "viagra" or "sex" or "...." etc. For the false positives I would like to know which keyword did match with the filter-conditions to adapt the filter-conditions.

So if there exists some kind of an add-on for thunderbird for filtering which has a detailed log-function this would be great.

best regards Stefan

P.S.: Of course my email-providers say they use SPAM-filters on their side. But my experience the provider SPAM-filtering lets through some of the SPAM.

As I'm writing here about anti-spam: does anybody know of a SPAM-filter with radical whitelist plus auto-reply for unknown email-adresses and auto-inserting new sendemails to the whitelist?
