I needed to restore my Apple Mail following a re-format and re-install. I made the mistake of not backing up SpamSieve. I re-installed SpamSieve and so effectively will be starting from scratch.
After running Mail/SpamSieve a few times, SpamSieve told me that it didn’t have enough good messages in it’s corpus. So I highlighted all the messages in my Inbox (about 2000) and told it that they were good. Now I’m finding that quite a lot of spam messages are not being filtered…especially those ones that have the spam as, what looks like, an image.
What should I have done?
What should I do now?
In future, what is the best way to backup spamsieve along with my Apple mail?
