SpamSieve shows up momentarily in menu bar when in SpamSieve app, but it goes away. This occurred in Ventura and still does in Sonoma. Updated SpamSieve yesterday in Monterey and just updated to Sonoma and still not working.
I do have the app Hidden Bar since I’m on a 13 MBA. Maybe some interaction with Hidden Bar. I’ll try rebooting without Hidden Bar launching. But will have to post this first.
SpamSieve does show in menubar on my 27" monitor powered by a mini. Still at Ventura.
The amount of free menu bar space (where icons can go) changes depending on which app you’re in. Which app is it not working in, and does that app have menus that take up more or less space than SpamSieve’s menus?
And, yes, it would be good to test without Hidden Bar.
Rebooted. Shows up in menu bar in apps with few menu bar items (iPhone apps which don’t have a menu bar, so only defaults showing.
But in macOS apps with for example nine menu items like Safari which I’m in now, the SpamSieve menu bar item isn’t showing. Presumably because there isn’t room for it (OK I have too many menu bar items—I can see 15.
OK, I found a work around. Hidden Bar has an option to move the menu bar items around. So now I see SpamSieve. But I really only want SpamSieve in Mail. And although I haven’t read all the docs yet, it appears that this is the only way to “Train…” Spam Sieve. I think this used to show up under Messages in Mail.
It seems like there’s enough space there, unless you are on a MacBook that has a camera housing (notch) right where that blank space is. I wonder if you have a third-party menu bar management utility installed that’s interfering. If that’s not it, please try to gather the diagnostics that I suggested in the previous post.
Is it an M1 or M2 MacBook Pro? I believe those all have a camera housing that covers the middle of the menu bar near where you have 1Password. So there may not actually be space available even though it looks like there is.
You could try removing the battery, sound, or Wi-Fi menu bar icon, as those are all available in Control Center, anyway. Or, even if you only remove some icons temporarily, that might be enough so that you can see the SpamSieve icon and Command-drag it more to the right so that it stays visible.
M1 and yes there’s the camera housing. That’s not it though. I removed some ot the other icons on the menu bar, and the SpamSieve one still doesn’t show up, even though there is way more than enough space for it.
