I didn’t see any threads on my specific issue, so here it is. I have been experiencing a persistent problem (change in application behavior) for 3 weeks or more (probably some update from somebody). I first noticed that SpamSieve was no longer moving messages when invoking the CTRL-Command-S key combo. The messages are marked as Spam, and unread messages are marked as read, but the messages remain grayed-out in the active mailbox without moving to the Trash as before. If I switch the view to another mailbox and then return to the previous mailbox, the grayed-out messages are now gone.
I have noticed a similar behavior when invoking Apple Mail’s key combo for Archiving messages, but it’s erratic; sometimes a message is moved to the Archive instantly, sometimes not (generally, the messages that don’t move instantly seem to magically move in minutes, hours or even days). I have 6 active email inboxes, 2 of which are Gmail accounts and the rest are handled by a MediaTemple grid server I maintain. I have not yet been able to define a pattern to the erratic behavior of the Archive action.
I run Mail Act-On and MailTags along with SpamSieve. I have tried disabling both of the Indev plug-ins, and I see the same behavior. All software and plug-ins are fully updated.
Any thoughts on what is going on? I have learned to live with the state of things, but it’s not like it was a month or so ago when everything worked as expected, and it’s kind of a nuisance.
