I’ve signed up for the 30 day SpamSieve filter, and I’ve been very impressed with its results so far, but I’ve noticed a possible side effect which could be causing some problems.
I’ve implemented the SpamSieve rule and placed it at the top of my list of rules, as recommended. After that, I have about 30 or 40 rules that are supposed to identify messages of certain types and then delete them if they’re older than a day.
The problem is, when SpamSieve is running, these rules do not work unless I go into each individual rule, change a parameter slightly (for example, “Subject begins with ‘Post’” turned into “Subject begins with 'Post '” and then apply the change to the rule. If I disable the SpamSieve rule, then all my deletions work as expected, but then I’ve got a bunch of spam in my inbox.
Since SpamSieve has saved me so much time deleting and dealing with spam, I will likely pick it up when the trial expires, but I wanted to know if anyone else had experienced this, and if there’s any solution to it. Thanks.
