Deleting specific spam

SpamSieve has been a great product and I really appreciate having it. It has been a great defense for me in the fight against spam.

I have certain emails that spam sieve catches and are marked as spam and and put into the right folder. I would like Apple Mail to delete COMPLETELY off of my system. How would I set up a rule with Spam Sieve and Apple Mail to do that. Do I put the rule on top of the spam sieve rule or below it.

Any help would be appreciated.

There are basically two ways to do this:

  1. Create a rule in Apple Mail, above the SpamSieve rule, that deletes the messages.
  2. Create a blocklist rule in SpamSieve and configure SpamSieve to put the more spammy, i.e. blocklisted, messages in the trash and the less spammy messages in the Spam mailbox.
