I am still encountering massive email slowdowns with Spam Sieve. Apple Mail shows these absurd incoming message reports (currently showing 17166 of 17194 incoming messages). I’m guessing something is happening like moving mail from the junk mail folder to the spam folder is prompting Apple Mail to redownload ALL my mail and reindex everything.
When I look at activity monitor, two processes show up as “not responding”:
Mail (of course)
I think the second must be one of the two SpamSieve scripts that are being run.
I’ve tried to change the behavior of my email accounts (I have four of them) by unchecking this behavior: “Store junk mail on server” but that seems to completely undermine the whole reason for SpamSieve.
I have sampled the processes again and have included them here, but i suspect the response will be that the system is hanging while Mail is polling my server. I get that, but is there any way around this?
