SpamSieve doesn't quit when Mail.app quits


Been using SpamSieve for about a month and it works great. One problem I’ve had, though – at first, SpamSieve would quit when I quit Mail.app (I do have the “Quit when mail client quits” box checked in the prefs). At some point, though, it stopped quitting when I quit Mail.app, so now I have to quit SpamSieve manually every time. Not a big deal, but would like to have this preference working. I think it may have stopped working when I upgraded SpamSieve to the latest version, but I’m not sure. Any ideas?


The Quit when mail client quits preference will only cause SpamSieve to quit if all the mail clients have quit. This is because some people use SpamSieve with more than one mail program at a time. If you want SpamSieve to quit when Apple Mail quits, ignoring the fact that Thunderbird is still running, you can work around this behavior by entering the following command into Terminal:

defaults write com.c-command.SpamSieve NotifierMailClientNames -array Mail

Thanks for the help!
