Hi, I am new to this forum. And I did a search for this topic but did not find exactly what I was looking for.
I can see that some of you use both SpamSieve and SandBox. I have been using SaneBox for a couple of years. It has really helped. I know that SpamSieve and SaneBox do not really do the same things. But I probably do not need all the features and power of SaneBox. SandBox is pretty pricey for me since I do not use my mail for work or business related activities. I am having a hard time justifying the price. On the other hand I stopped using SaneBox once before and could not stand personally managing the flood of irrelevant emails.
As a lifelong learner I am just drowning in documentation and information that I need to retrieve regularly. In fact, I am buying EagleFiler today because software like DevonThink and Curio have been way more work than I want to deal with; but the native Apple environment does not allow me to retrieve the information I need well enough. After demo-ing EagleFiler, it kinda hits that sweet spot of “just right.”
I also would like software that is “just right” for my email. I use Sanebox’s “Black Hole” and Sandbox’s management capabilities for separating high priority emails from email “lists” that are really mostly ads. I was wondering if SpamSieve might be a better, more reasonably priced, alternative for me. I have also looked at other alternatives to SaneBox, but I very much prefer stand-alone software to services, especially browser-based ones.
I use the Apple email application in Sierra to read and manage my email with an Apple email address and aliases, plus a separate gmail account which is set up to go directly to my Apple email client. Sanebox keeps track of both my Apple email and my gmail.
