Been using SpamSieve for 4 years, love it. Help me understand the difference between SS marking as spam and Mail.app ‘mark as junk’ when it comes to preventing loading of images.
The desired behavior is that anything that SS finds and sticks into the Spam folder, should be automatically marked as Junk from mail.app’s perspective, and therefore should display the Load Images banner on top.
What happens for me is that mail gets processed correctly, put into my Spam folder and color coded. But the Load Images banner doesn’t appear. And the messages don’t have Junk icons on them. I really don’t care about the junk icons part, or what mail.app thinks of the messages. But I do want the Load Images banner to appear so I’m not loading web bugs.
My Spam bucket is on the server (Exchange, if it matters), not local, so that I can review the spam on the road if needed. I also use remote spam/good training. The spam folder path is “Inbox/Spam”. Does it need to be at the root level? Does it need to be named something special? Is there anything else I need to do to get the Load Images banner and prevent images from auto-loading?
