When I installed the SpamSieve, more than a year ago, I followed the suggestion in the documentation and inserted two inconsistent rules in the Mail.app Junk filter Advanced panel. This seemed to work fine until recently, when I was bothered with many false positives, and I realized that they had nothing to do with SpamSieve (the messages were not colored). It seems that the Mail.app configuration does not allow any more the two inconsistent rules recommended by SpamSieve documentation (and it automatically removes one of them if both are set). I have inserted another impossible rule, similar to “Subject equal to asjkvvkajdflahjfew”; the issue is that, occasionally, I still have some strange false positives.
So, my questions are:
- If the message is not colored, could it have been moved by SpamSieve?
- Does Mail.app move messages into the Junk folder although they do not satisfy the rules defined in the Advanced panel?
Here is my configuration of Mail.app junk filter:
And here is the Advanced panel:
I would like to leave the Mail.app Junk filter on because of the handy shortcut to remove all spam messages, and because it is possible to map IMAP folders directly to the Junk folder. Nonetheless, if it is not possible to avoid the above-mentioned problem, I will remove the filter.
Thanks for the wonderful application and for your help!
