Note: the forum says I sent this message already, but I don’t see it. I first entered without being logged in. So I logged in and hit the back arrow and tried to send, but got that weird message. Hope this time it works.
Hello. I just bought the program today after trying for two days. I like it. before my email domain provider’s spam filter failed o catch everything. Now most stuff is caught, and I train the program to
recognize the good stuff.
The problem (If it IS a problem):
Spam Sieve is working. But I also found Spam messages in my Spam box on my IMAP account. Which is good that they were caught, but what I am confused about is why they all did not go into Spam Sieve.
SpamSieve is at the top of the list in the rules, which only contain two checked ones from Apple (News from Apple, identical rules it seems) and an unchecked one from my previous university.
Could it be they are filtered at my provider’s side before being sent?
I know they use a program called SHIELD but not sure if that is applied to my account or only as a premium service. Waiting for their answer.
I think my Mac was off at the time. I don’t know how that affects things. My IPad was being charged. The email program may have been open, but I did
check the messages there.
I read you have to set for each of your domains in a thread here, but not on the instructions from SpamSieve. So i assume that settings apply across the board.
- That is ONE question…why Spam is going to two places, my provider’s and Spam Sieve Spam folder.Oly Spam Sieve is on my Mac The provider’s is on the Imap account,
- Another question is can I just use the Apple menu MOVE TO FOLDER rather than the Spam Sieve Train as Good/Bad? Especially the TRAIN AS BAD takes forever if I select a lot of messages, say 100 or so.
- Must I keep message in my Spam box or can I delete them. Does having them serve a useful purpose.
Details about my MAC setup:
Only installed on my Mac.
I use an Ipad as well with the same Imap configurations but have not checked it for mail so often.
I am using for my main one from my webhost/email domain (tokyoprogressive.(ORG) and arenson.(ORG) provider. I also use for mac (icloud) mail. And a few more.
Google mail is also forwarded to my main domains.
