I’ve used SpamSieve with Entourage on the Mac with POP accounts successfully for a number of years. I just switched to Mail.app using IMAP accounts on a MacBook Pro running Leopard and I’m having problems.
I have turned off Mail’s Junk Email filtering and I have SpamSieve sending spam directly to the Trash on the server. When I first launch SpamSieve in the morning or when I wake my MacBook the inbox fills with email (50 to 100 email, mostly spam) and SpamSieve doesn’t move it to the trash - it stays in the inbox. As additional email arrives, SpamSieve does filter it correctly, but it never handles the initial batch still sitting in my inbox correctly. Even when I select the emails and run Apply Rules it doesn’t filter and move the spam to the trash. If I select one or just a couple at a time and run Apply Rules it will filter and move the spam, but this defeats the purpose of having automated filtering.
Why is this not working?
