I use SpamSieve along with a .Mac account. In Mail, I have disabled the junk mail filter as you suggest. However, I do have the junk mail filter enabled in the .Mac webmail interface because I found that if I didn’t, I would have to wade through tons of junk whenever I used .Mac webmail.
However, because I’ve enabled the junk filter on .Mac webmail, there is now a “junk” folder in my Mail client again. This is a separate folder from the one that SpamSieve puts the spam it catches into.
So I have a few questions:
Is it a problem to have these separate folders?
Is there a way I can use SpamSieve to help train .Mac webmail’s junk filtering, which leaves a lot to be desired? If I drag a message from the Spam folder used by SpamSieve to the Junk folder in Mail (used by .Mac), would that identify the message as “spam” for .Mac?
