Before I bought SpamSieve, I would characteristically receive 3 or 4 spam messages per day among my half dozen email accounts. It had been that way for YEARS. Although the amount of spam was minimal, it was still a pain going through my messages each day and verifying which had been identified as spam but weren’t, as well as those that were spam but not identified as such (Apple Mail’s built in filter was often unable to learn; the same spam messages would often still make it through even though I repeatedly marked them as spam).
So I bought SpamSieve and within TWO DAYS (!) I started receiving dozens of spam messages per day into EACH of my accounts. Now, about a month later, I get 300-400 PER DAY! SpamSieve is very good at identifying them as such, but I still have to review them all to make sure there were no mis-identifications.
The sceptic in me finds in very unusual that a flow of spam that was steady at the rate of 3 or 4 per day for 20+ YEARS would suddenly jump to several hundred per day as soon as I installed SpamSieve and when absolutely nothing else whatsoever changed in my computing environment. I find myself wondering if C-Command deliberately captured all my email account information and either sends spam to those addresses or shares that information with third-party spammers just to make me happy that I bought the software (and will thus recommend it to others).
Has anyone else seen a similar pattern? If not, can anyone explain what may have happened to cause such a DRAMATIC increase in spam volume (and how to stop it)?
