Spam blocking coming to Mozilla Mail

Browsing the CVS checkins for Mozilla, I noticed a lot of work being done on a spam blocking feature for Mozilla.

After a little digging I found the bugzilla bug associated with it, 169638.

It seems like this feature will be based around a "scoring" system that queries email to determine how likely it is to be spam. It looks like you will be able to control the sensitivity of this "scoring" via a preferences panel.

Once the spam filter has been turned on, you can view the "SPAM" folder to see what's there with the "score" for the email displayed.

The UI spec has some more details and pretty screenshots (mock-ups). There's more bugs around as well (for backend etc.).

Apart from filters that sort your incoming email into spam /non spam how about a bounce function.
