SpamSieve nonfunctional after upgrading to macOS Sierra 10.12.1

When I click on the SpamSieve application and periodically throughout the day, I will get a dialog with the following information: This happened after I upgraded to 10.12.1.

Now, the application does not filter SPAM. I have done a manual re-install, but get the same error. Running 2.9.26

It looks like there’s a problem with your Mac such that SpamSieve’s corpus file:

/Users/Paul/Library/Application Support/SpamSieve/Corpus.corpus/Words201

cannot be read. It might help to restart the Mac, or there might be a hardware problem. If restarting doesn’t help, you could try deleting that file or replacing it with a backup, but that would only be a temporary fix. There would still be an underlying problem if your Mac is unable to read certain files from disk.

Not sure how the file became corrupted, but I deleted it and reinstalled SS and started retraining it. Everything is working now. Thanks for your help!
