I read that already before you even replied to me, and it didnt tell me
anything on why its not moving those emails to the spam folder after
constantly clicking THIS IS SPAM...

 As I said I have been telling it for the last 2 months anything / net I forget which suffix it ends with, that it is bad
and to send it to spam when it comes in. 

I dont understand why by now it should understand that I dont want to
see emails from that company and to send it to the spam folder. You'd
think after a month or two of clicking THIS IS SPAM that it would learn
to not even show me those emails and to move them to the spam folder. 

What do you mean EVO does not have any influence?

I had this same problem using bogofilter.  My solution was to install the evolution-plugin-spamassassin and 
packages from my Linux distro  and then go to Evolution Preferences->Mail Preferences->Junk and enable Spam 
Assassin in
place of bogofilter on the following option: junk filtering software:.  I still get a few emails that the 
filter doesn't
catch but it does catch most of them after marking junk mail as junk.  

I hadn't had a piece of junk mail in years as my email provider was stopping all junk mail, so these are 
sophisticated junk mail senders.  I'm not surprised that bogofilter was having problems with them but enabling
spamassassin seems to work pretty well.  

If you run Windows I have no idea what extra packages you would have install as I haven't run windows now for 
15 years
or so.  I would imagine there are online resources that will tell you what you need to do in Windows.

I run the 3.36.4 version of Evolution.
