Yes I have filters in place but only for one account which sorts out the 
various mailing lists into sub folders, however all email accounts are 
affected the same way. According to the manual, junk mail filtering is 
done after the normal message filtering. The spam is being left in the 
inbox albeit marked as such and marked as read. Just for some reason 
thunderbird won't move it to the junk folder automatically.
