Set up: Spamsieve 2.6.5, OS 10.5.1 and 10.4.11
I’m using Spamsieve on two computers, a MacBook laptop (OS 10.5.1) and a MacPro desktop (OS 10.4.11). My email accounts are set up identically on both machines. Note that the MacBook is running Leopard while the MacPro has Tiger. The MacPro is connected to a university server, whereas I use my laptop with broadband at home.
On my MacBook, messages that I deleted from my Spam folder reappear each time Mail logs into my account. If I don’t delete the mail prior to the next time Mail checks for new mail, then Mail downloads duplicate copies of the same spam. So if I start with 10 spam messages in the Spam folder, the amount increases to 20, then 30, and so on each time Mail logs into my account. If I delete the messages, then the original 10 (plus any new spam) will appear again in my Spam folder.
It’s strange because I can successfully delete other, non-spam, messages (such as from my inbox). Only messages in my Spam folder on the MacBook can’t be deleted. Also, if delete the same Spam messages from the Spam folder on the MacPro, then the messages will not appear on my MacBook. In other words, I can delete the spam from my MacPro, but not from my MacBook.
Any ideas as to why I can’t delete Spam on my laptop?
