Well, I have 9 days left on the demo, and I’m still not sure whether I’ll be purchasing, owing to the problems that keep cropping up. Thing is, I don’t know if they are Mail.app issues, or SS issues. The problem with my problem is that the issues are inconsistent, and don’t seem to follow a predictable pattern.
For example, just now I found about a dozen messages that had been marked as spam/read and moved into junk earlier back in my inbox, still read but no longer marked as spam. I had to retrain them as spam to get them out of the inbox and into junk.
And the other day I was examining my Unread Smart Folder, and before my eyes, every email in it was processed as spam. I had to the dig thru my Junk folder to rescue the lost msgs and make sure SS unlearned them.
Any thoughts on what would cause these kinds of problems?
The only consistent problem I have is one that I think is a bug with Mail. When I wake my machine from sleep, it immediately downloads new mail, but is slow to process rules, so that everything that is new since sleeping does not get processed, forcing me to Apply Rules to the unread folder to get things in their right places. If mail holds off on checking for new mail for a minute or two (say if Airport had been off), then rules work fine.
Anyone else have this kind of problem, and have a solution to it?
Thanks in advance,
