I don't have Bogofilter or SpamAssassin installed, but unfortunately on
the Junk tab in Mail Preferences there is not a "none" option for "Junk
filtering software".  If I use dconf-editor to set
org.gnome.evolution.mail.junk-default-plugin to "none" the error box
stops being displayed (at least until the Junk tab is opened again, at
which point the value of junk-default-plugin resets to "Bogofilter").

Should there be a way to disable the junk plugin, even when evolution is
built to support it?  I use the Junk operation to quickly refile
messages (I process them in bulk later), so IMO it's still useful even
without a plugin.

Preferences->Mail Preferences->Junk->Check incoming messages for Junk.

I don't know what you mean.  I currently have that box unchecked.

Using the manual Junk button without having a junk processor installed
is somewhat unusual. You might consider marking messages for later
followup (Shift-Ctrl-G) or using labels.

what I like about Ctrl-J is that messages are immediately refiled into
Junk.  I don't see a way to do that with Shift-Ctrl-G, and with labels
I'd need to apply a label (is there a shortcut for that?) and then apply
filters with Ctrl-Y to refile.

Does it seem unreasonable to have a "none" option for
