The following was posted on the SpamSieve blog:
Version 2.9.16 of SpamSieve is now available. This is a free update that includes the following changes:
- Works with Apple Mail under Mac OS X 10.9.5. It’s easiest if you update to SpamSieve 2.9.16 before updating to Mac OS X 10.9.5. In any case, if you don’t see the SpamSieve commands in Apple Mail’s Message
menu, be sure to choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu. Otherwise, with the SpamSieve plug-in not installed, Mail will move good messages to the spam mailbox without consulting SpamSieve. - Improved compatibility with pre-release versions of Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
- Made various changes to improve SpamSieve’s filtering accuracy.
- Updated the Outlook and Entourage scripts for compatibility with the upcoming Mac OS X 10.0. If you’re using one of those mail clients, you should update the scripts by choosing Install Outlook Scripts or Install Entourage Scripts from the SpamSieve menu.
- Updated the Apple Mail - Discard Spam, Apple Mail - Move If Spam, Apple Mail - Remote Training, Apple Mail - Save Spam, and PowerMail - Uncertain Spam Condition scripts to work around a bug in the upcoming Mac OS X 10.10. If you are using these scripts, you will need to download and install fresh copies of them.
- Updated the Apple Mail - Remote Training, Apple Mail - SaneBox, and Apple Mail - Server Junk Mailbox scripts to work around a problem with duplicate messages created from deleted messages that Mail had not expunged. If you are using these scripts, you will need to download and install fresh copies of them.
- Added a new method of hiding SpamSieve’s Dock icon that doesn’t require editing the Info.plist file. For more information, see the How can I hide SpamSieve’s Dock icon? section of the manual.
- Added the Faster Apple Mail Training, Why don’t I see the SpamSieve commands in Apple Mail’s Message menu?, and Recommended Apple Mail Customizations (Mac OS X 10.8 and Earlier) sections of the manual.
- Improved the Automatically Deleting Old Spam Messages, Changing the Name of the Spam Mailbox sections, Show Blocklist, Show Whitelist, Requirements, Correct All Mistakes, Separate Spam Mailboxes for Each Account, Use Mac OS X Address Book, Redirecting Good Messages to Another Account, Apple Mail Customization, How should I configure the junk filter on my mail server?, Updating From a Previous Version, and Uninstalling SpamSieve sections of the manual.
- SpamSieve is better at repairing folder ownership and permissions.
- SpamSieve is better able to recover from errors when creating temporary folders.
- Made lots of code modernizations.
- By default, training a message as good in Apple Mail no longer clears its colored flags. This can be adjusted using the AppleMailTrainGoodClearFlags option in the esoteric preferences.
- Esoteric preferences links are now directly clickable in the Apple Help and PDF manual.
- Worked around a problem where Apple Mail could hang at launch if MailTags was installed.
- Removed spurious warnings about extra Apple Mail preferences files.
- Improved error reporting when SpamSieve can’t connect to the update server.
- Removed the Option-key workaround to have SpamSieve try to update the Apple Mail plug-in’s Info.plist file (based on installed version of Mail) because it’s no longer effective.
- Fixed a bug reporting an error from running a compiled AppleScript.
- Improved the crash reporter.
- Fixed a crash when reporting file errors.
- We need help keeping SpamSieve’s Japanese localization up-to-date. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
SpamSieve 2.9.16 works with Mac OS X 10.6 through 10.10 and requires an e-mail client. Older versions are available for older operating systems. For information about previous releases of SpamSieve, please see the version history.
