No, my filters are set to usually move mail to different folders, with a few that delete. Current mozilla releases have a built in bogofilter that marks mail as spam, and you can configure it to move of delete the detected spam. It currently misses about 10% of actual spam (false negatives) but only gets 0.2% false positives (1 in 328, today) and those tend to be spam looking messages from vendors whose ads I have an interest in.
I have noticed that the automatically-marked-read messages tend to have as their subject ¨Re:¨ or another number in the same pattern.
