I’ve been using SpamSieve for years, and it’s doing a good job of catching spam, but I’m finding that I need to review the spam folder more carefully, and I’m wondering if I can make that less cumbersome: I like the label colors to indicate likeliness of spam, but they don’t seem to be helping much. For example, I get loads of messages for “Flight Simulator” but some still come in as yellow. Same for many other spam trends. I was wondering if, after confirming a bunch of spam, I could “train as spam” to make SpamSieve more certain of the next similar spams, but I see that’s not recommended in this thread: http://c-command.com/forums/showthread.php/3492-Bad-to-over-train-Spamsieve.
Is there something else to be done?
Also, the reason I’m checking the spam folder more lately is that I’ve had a few false positives, each from addresses I had sent mail to (in a couple of cases, the false positives were replying directly to mail I’d sent). Is it possible to automatically whitelist such addresses?
