I set up my spamsieve rule with the standard method discussed in the help doc. I am using Mail and system 10.6.5.
After Mail downloads my mail and routes it through spamsieve’s gauntlet, it does the same routine again and again. For instance, Mail Activity shows 276 messages and spamsieve is going at them. When it is done and I tell it to check the mail again immediately after, it will again check 276 incoming messages. The spam count does not go up. The inbox does not go up. The trash does not go up in count. Nothing changes, other than this never completed process.
I don’t understand what is going on and why.
It is as if it goes back to the server forever going to look at the messages. I have set my mail account to remove messages from the server immediately.
