Spamsieve shutting down at launch.

Hi all (and Michael if you see this).

I am seeing a strange behaviour in OS 10.5 Leopard.

Mail launches, starts downloading mail and spam. Occasionally SpamSieve launches with two medium sized icons in the dock and after one or two bounces shuts down. A few spams get past the application at this point as it is not launched. I can re-launch SpamSieve directly and it will settle down with the full sized icon in the dock. Thereafter it works normally.

SpamSieve works fine if launched directly, before launching Mail.

Any ideas?

Best regards,

I’m not sure what you mean by “two medium sized icons.” Could you attach a screenshot?

Are there any errors reported in Console?

Hi Michael,

Console has given me a clue: see attached screenshot. I only have one copy of SpamSieve installed in my Applications folder. I guess it is crapping out as two instances are being launched at once for some reason.

It only happens occasionally, no biggy. I can keep an eye out for a common denominator and advise if I see a pattern.

Best regards,


Do you have another copy of SpamSieve somewhere else? It’s best to have only one, in the Applications folder.
