Hi. I’m trying to have my spam messages marked as read after they are moved by SpamSieve to the Spam folder. I’m using Apple Mail 5.1 on Lion 10.7.2.
I followed the manual which says “to mark the spam messages as read, click the + button at the bottom of the rule sheet, and choose Mark as Read from the pop-up menu.” I did this within the SpamSieve rule and it didn’t work. I have also written an AppleScript which marks all messages in the Spam folder as read and added that to the SpamSieve rule which also doesn’t work. Just for good measure, I tried both of those in separate rules after the SpamSieve rule as well. The AppleScript works when run manually so that is not the problem.
Any suggestions for how I might accomplish this? I am using an Exchange account and my Spam folder is on the Exchange server and not on my computer. I’m not sure if that is part of the issue. Otherwise, SpamSieve is doing an excellent job of filtering messages.
Thanks for any suggestions.
