Long time SpamSieve user and logged on here today to investigate an issue I am having with Apple Mail taking a long time to launch. I saw another post here talking about that same issue and I will add information to that thread later. But first, I created some sort of problem for myself while I was reading what was being said about perhaps changing a spamsieve preference that might have helped with my other issue Mail loading time issue. I thought clicking on a link I saw in that other post (about changing preferences) would send me to some text to read about that topic but instead it actually changed a preference for me on (I would guess) my version of SpamSieve, a preference I cannot find as described. But I did save a screenshot of what the preference said. It is as follows… “The “InstallerMailFasterAppleEvent” is now set to YES”. And once that occurred, now anytime I quit and restart Apple Mail, I get one of two messages from SpamSieve, one that says “SpamSieve has temporarily deactivated its AppleMail rules”. If I quit and restart Mail, next time I get that it has “reactivated” the same… What a mess. I’ve gone in to “Rules” in Apple Mail Preferences and I see the SpamSieve rule sitting there and something (not me) keeps toggling that check mark. Why??? What happened and how to do I find this “InstallerMailFasterAppleEvent” preference???
Help me get that fixed and then I will post in another thread I see here about my initial problem, that I, like at least a couple of others, are reporting that Apple Mail is taking a long time to load these days… But first things first… Help with this crazy toggling of SpamSieve rules, on, off, on, off???
