SpamSieve could not find the favorite mailbox “Spam”
I’ve seen a few posts on this topic–but none of it helped.
I’ve been using SS (v2.9.12) for a long time with no problem. But I got it in my head to set up a drone and followed instructions. That became too complicated so I deleted all of the drone rules and reinstated the original SS rule with just the one spam folder “on my mac.” I kept on getting the favorite mailbox error. So I completely uninstalled SS (carefully following instructions, deleting all of the home library files–plus plug-ins and applescripts). I also deleted the SS rule from my Apple Mail account prefs. And for good measure deleted the Spam folder.
So starting completely from scratch, i made a clean install of SS.
But I still get the “favorite mailbox” error!!!
I even went to the library Maildata folder and deleted (what I took to be) all Apple Mail rule preferences.
Still no go.
So I’ve temporarily deactivate the SS rule, and enabled Apple junk mail. But now I have an inbox full of long past emails–with good addresses but all labeled junk. What a mess.
What can I do?
