hello, and thanks for spamsieve, which has worked extremely well for quite some time.
i’ve been running leopard for a few weeks, now. last night, i left my computer running, and this morning, there were no new messages in mail. since that simply never happens, i relaunched mail and saw several new messages appear. i read a few of them, then answered a phone call. and when i returned, the new messages i had started to read had all disappeared from my inbox. relaunching mail revealed the messages again, but within 3-5 minutes, they disappeared again.
after seeing this 3 or 4 times, i found an existing thread about this issue in the apple discussions, so i added a post under the name “Syncopator”:
i began to suspect spamsieve, only because i was hearing the “new mail sound” every 60 seconds – even though no new messages were being received (and because i have sounds disabled in mail.app).
so i disabled spamsieve (by quitting the process and removing the mailbundle, but leaving other items intact; then relaunching mail), and so far – about 45 minutes, now – no messages have disappeared.
it’s difficult to believe that spamsieve would cause this, but i’m simply reporting my observations, so far. (please note that i’ve asked, in the apple discussion, if any others experiencing this issue are also running spamsieve. so far, no one has definitively confirmed using spamsieve, but i’m watching closely.)
could this be a simple matter of corrupt preferences? i have yet to try trashing them.
