Hmm... If "Thunderbird thinks this message is junk." that means TB
thinks it is Spam. Probably because of the signature. TB, for me, shows
that warning as a red warning.

You have two options. Ignore it for my message(s) or tell TB it, my
message, is not Spam. TB's Spam has to be 'trained' like this. You can
also have TB look a 'Scams'. But I find that feature a pain in the neck.
