Windows 7: For Any Thunderbird Users: Deleting Scam eMails Automatically ?

Message Filters:

The tutorial breaks down the process into small steps.
Once you've done it once or twice, it becomes much easier.
Perhaps it might help to print out the instructions for reference?

Junk Mail controls:
Thunderbird also has built-in Junk Mail controls.
As with most other spam-filtering products, these controls must be "trained".
Here are links that explain Junk Mail controls - you just need to click on the blue words below to read the articles:

This makes me believe you may not have your Menu Bar showing, so you are only able see limited tools pertaining to an email in progress. At the top of your TB screen, do you see the underlined headings for File, Edit, View, Go, Message, Help ? If not, hold down Alt-V, select Toolbars and check Menu Bar. Hope this helps!

Then, at the extreme right hand end, there is TOOLS and HELP

Under TOOLS, I have only 4 items:

Mail and Newsgroups
Address Book
Account Settings

Honest, that's it. Nothing apparently regarding Filters

What am I, as usual, doing wrong ?
Is there something optional to pull down more items in TOOLS ?

Thanks again,

When you said Tools pull down menu I thought you meant the one in this screenshot. In order to display it you can also right click a blank part of the dark blue area and select "Menu Bar"
