Hi Regis,

Hmmm,  if it's classifying from the Tools menu, it should be
classifying from the commands in Junk mail configuration too.

Here are the settings I have:
Configuration -> Common Preferences -> Junk Mail
     Enable junk control
         Learning commands:
           Junk:  bogofilter -s -I
           Not Junk:  bogofilter -n -I
         Classifying command: bogofilter -u -I

     Junk folder: #mh/Mailbox/Junk
     Filter messages classified as junk on receiving
     Filter junk mails before normal filtering

(Note:  I thought I had -N -s -I and -S -n -I but when I looked, I had
it set as above.  I've changed it now so I'll know if a day or two if
it's working better.)

Another thing you might try is to use a filter command that uses
[Result of command] to run bogofilter.
