Unified Junk Folder dont show Yahoo Bulk Mail even when manually added

I have set View-Folders to Unified. This shows single Junk folder with Accounts name as its sub-folders.

The Left side pane listing is somewhat like this: Junk - GMAccount1 - GMAccount2

All accounts are IMAP accounts.

I also have Yahoo IMAP account where Junk folder is named as Bulk Mail.

By default thunderbird does not consider it as Junk folder so what I do is: 1) Right click on top-level unified junk folder and go to properties 2) Under "Select the folders to search" I manually add Yahoo accounts Bulk Mail folder.

After adding I expect that, the left hand side listing would become:

Junk - GMAccount1 - GMAccount2 - YahooAccountName

But it does not show YahooAccount as a subfolder. (Even after restarting thunderbird)

But surprisingly, when I click on top level unified junk folder, then it shows the e-mails in "Bulk Mail" in the right hand side pane.

Which means there is a minor display bug which does not display the folders included in Unified folder.

Please let me know if there is right solution or please correct the bug.

Thank you.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

I found a solution:

Goto YahooAccount's properties Junk Settings Under Destination and Retention Check Move new junk messages to: Other: Bulk mail on YahooAccount Restart thunderbird

This way thunderbird knows this is junk folder and then starts displaying it under "Unified Junk" folder.

This solve the problem but I suppose this should not be needed.

Any account mentioned in "Select the folders to search" (in properties of unified folder - as mentioned above), should be displayed under that "unified folder"
