    I am sometimes annoyed when I have no new mail in the inbox, yet because I have mail in spam, it still shows up that I have unread messages.

    Is there a way to mark all spam messages as read... or only have the inbox messages get counted?

    Thanks!

    Sure, go to Preferences, Rules (might have to click the arrow at the right end of the icon bar), then "Add Rule" and enter the following:

    if any of the following conditions is met:
    message is junk mail

    perform the following actions:
    move message to mailbox Junk
    Mark as Read

    Thank you so much for your help--I think it worked! I knew it would be possible, but I wasn't sure how to do this.

    Thanks again!!
