I recently began using SpamSieve, which has been a great success.
As recommended, I turned off my handcrafted Mail rules that supplemented Mail’s built-in Junk filtering.
I’m considering re-enabling a couple of my rules that automatically delete some messages before SpamSieve gets a chance to move them to my Spam mailbox. For example, I get 10+ messages a day addressed to “GEORGIE JOHNSON” at one of my email accounts. Although SpamSieve correctly classifies all of them as spam, they clutter my Spam mailbox, slowing down my visual scans for legitimate messages.
Is there any problem with putting carefully targeted Delete rules before the SpamSieve rule that’s currently at the beginning of my Rules list?
