I have a Mac Mini set up as a mail drone with Apple Mail. I have had this setup for a few months and am still working to get it right. My main issue at the moment is that rules on the drone disappear on a fairly regular basis. I have looked at possible iCloud sync issue, although I’m not sure I fully understand how that works. Also, maybe I could approach my objective in a different way.
The drone has these rules set up in the following order:
On a regular basis, the three account rules just disappear. I re-create them, and after some time they are gone again. They work while they are present.
My objective is to have the drone filter about a dozen email accounts and send all blue, gray, purple, red spam directly to the local Trash on the drone. The yellow and orange I would like to go into the local Spam folder. Make sense? Is there a simple way to do that?
