    Hi,

    Just want to share my fix...

    Problem:
    Suddenly Mail starts crashing when pressing 'Junk' and the junkfilter stops working. :(

    Fix:
    Quit Mail and trash these files, 'MessageSorting.plist' and 'MessageSorting.plist.backup' from '[user]/Library/Mail'.
    'Junk (Tobias's Mail).mbox' from '[user]/Library/Mail/Mailboxes'

    That solved my problem... :)

    Are those files the ones that "Junk" builds onto for it's filtering? If so, by trashing those does it "reset" the "junk" training? :confused:

    Ooh, I had that problem at one point, so this is good to know.

    And no, those files are only 8K and seem to store your sorting preferences, which might include weather to automatically mark/move junk messages, but shouldn't have anything to do with the marking criteria.
