Why Does "Move to Junk' not also "Mark as Junk"?

Reported by stuzbot | May 25th, 2023 @ 07:36 PM

Since I've been using MailMate, I've always used the handy "Move selected messages to junk mailbox" button on the main window to flag messages as spam, assuming [logically I think!] that the very fact of moving a message to the Junk mailbox would tell MailMate to regard it as spam.

However, I've recently noticed that this doesn't always happen. I select some messages, hit the "Move selected messages to junk mailbox" button and they go into my Junk mailbox. However if I later select one of the messages while it's in the Junk folder, quite often it will have an orange header saying "This message is in a junk folder, but it is not explicitly marked as Junk".

Why does this happen? Shouldn't the very act of moving a message to the Junk folder also cause MailMate to mark it s Junk? I can't envision any circumstance where you WOULDN'T want this to happen.
