Merge different spam rules into one

Please, it would be useful for me to be able to merge several spam rules into one rule.
If it can be done, how is the procedure?

Thank you,


I’m not sure what you are referring to. Do you mean in the Blocklist window? Could you give an example and explain what you are trying to accomplish?

Let’s say we have these rules:
Spam 1
Spam 2
Various spam
To be deleted

Since I have at least 20 rules here (Each with about30-50 items), I would like to merge them into one (e.g. “Old spam”), so you can continue with a single new rule (“New spam”) and only have:

Old spam (everything else in here)
New spam.

I mean the rules of Mail’s Preference.

Thank you.

This is not something SpamSieve can help you with. In general, I recommend deleting or disabling other spam rules in Apple Mail when using SpamSieve. They are usually not needed. If you really want to keep them, they should be above the SpamSieve rule in Mail’s preferences, however SpamSieve will not be able to protect you from any mistakes that the manual rules make.

Well, thank you for your reply and advice.
