Here’s a new beta version of SpamSieve. The changes are:
- Apple Mail filtering is much faster and is no longer limited by the number of messages in a mailbox.
- This applies to the Check inboxes for new messages not sent to Mail extension, Filter spam messages in other mailboxes, and Add green flag to unread good messages features.
- To enable the faster filtering, make sure that you have granted SpamSieve Full Disk Access. Without Full Disk Access, SpamSieve will still work, but in some cases it will be slower or report an error if a mailbox contains too many messages.
- If you haven’t granted Full Disk Access, but SpamSieve thinks you would benefit from doing so, it will show a warning help link in the Settings ‣ Apple Mail ‣ Setup window.
- This optimization currently requires macOS 13 Ventura or later. (Customers using earlier versions of macOS don’t need it because they can use the Mail plug-in.)
- When fast filtering is available, SpamSieve now defaults to checking for new messages every 5 seconds instead of every minute, and the Select Mailboxes to Filter… sheet will no longer show large mailboxes in orange or red.
- Tried to fix a rare bug where the training hot keys didn’t work in Apple Mail or Outlook, perhaps related to using a Greek keyboard layout. If you are still seeing this problem, please send us a diagnostic report.
- The Mail extension no longer sets the background color at all on spam message if coloring is off.
- The Uncertain spam messages notification is now disabled by default.
