I am just a couple of days into my SpamSieve trial, and I must say I am impressed. My host has been having some issues with SpamAssassin, and I’ve been inundated for the past week with all the spam I haven’t even had to look at for such a long time.
I was hoping Spam Sieve would be able to just delete all spam rather than even putting it in the spam folder. However a search through the forums here seems to indicate that’s only possible by using Apple Mail’s Junk folder.
However, today I noticed something interesting which I don’t remember happening when I first installed SpamSieve. In my dock, when I receive mail, my Mail icon shows the number of new emails, and the SpamSieve icon also shows a number. When I check the mail, though, there’s nothing in my Spam folder…only my inbox. Is the SpamSieve icon showing all mail it processes? I was under the impression it only showed the number of spam emails.
If it’s actually just deleting them, that would be fine, as I trust it already. Or is this the way it always shows email?
