SpamSieve 3.0.4b2 Public Beta

Here’s a new beta version of SpamSieve. The changes are:

  • Fixed a problem where filtering or training a large batch of messages in Apple Mail could be slow or cause SpamSieve to hang or crash.
  • Fixed a problem where SpamSieve could hang when reporting an error if the log database couldn’t be saved.
  • If a database can’t be saved, SpamSieve now saves the changes to a text file so that there is a chance at recovering the data or figuring out what caused the problem.
  • If a database file is damaged, SpamSieve now marks it as such and moves it aside. At the next launch, SpamSieve will create a fresh database so that you don’t continually run into the same error.
  • SpamSieve is more responsive and better at reporting errors when Mail is not responding.
  • SpamSieve reports a better error message if Apple Mail filtering is slow and the problem can be fixed by switching from the Mail extension to the Mail plug-in.
  • Updated the Why are Apple Mail inbox messages not being processed? section of the manual.
  • Fixed a bug where some of SpamSieve’s script error codes could possibly conflict with Apple ones.
  • Fixed an issue where SpamSieve could be double-launched after restarting your Mac, possibly causing the Settings window to be opened when it should have been hidden. Also, to avoid this problem, we recommend that you do not add SpamSieve to System Settings ‣ General ‣ Login Items ‣ Open at Login. It should only be under Allow in the Background.
