A couple of days ago I noticed a large influx of spam in my inbox. (This wasn’t entirely unusual as I haven’t yet bothered to figure out the whole “what happens when my Mac goes to sleep” issue, so SpamSieve is currently awesome during the day and useless at night. However, I assume that there is a way to deal with that so it’s not what I’m asking about.)
The logs and stats have not been updated in days, even though the Mac has restarted in that time, and other than system reboots Airmail has restarted in that time as well. SpamSieve is in my Dock and appears to be running happily, but it has stopped doing anything. Here are my statistics:
Filtered Mail 0 Good Messages 0 Spam Messages 0 Spam Messages Per Day SpamSieve Accuracy 0 False Positives 0 False Negatives 100.0% Correct Corpus 1,898 Good Messages 3,458 Spam Messages (65%) 518,641 Total Words Rules 4,152 Blocklist Rules 1,313 Whitelist Rules Showing Statistics Since 1/21/15, 2:27 PM
Note that if I go back a week from the above time (which appears to be one minute after the last time SpamSieve detected either ham or spam) the statistics look significantly better:
Filtered Mail 554 Good Messages 1,127 Spam Messages (67%) 113 Spam Messages Per Day SpamSieve Accuracy 5 False Positives 0 False Negatives (0%) 99.7% Correct Corpus 1,898 Good Messages 3,458 Spam Messages (65%) 518,641 Total Words Rules 4,152 Blocklist Rules 1,313 Whitelist Rules Showing Statistics Since 1/14/15, 2:27 PM
If I quit and relaunch SpamSieve I get the normal log message, e.g.
===================================================================== Launched: 2.9.18 (2918030) on Mac OS X 10.10.1 Date: 2015-01-24 20:22:54 +0000
…but nothing thereafter, even if I manually train a spam in AirMail.
I am using AirMail 2.0.3 and I did check to make sure that I had not accidentally unchecked “Use SpamSieve”. SpamSieve says that it is the most current version (2.9.18) and my “strategy” setting is on the fourth notch (half-way between the middle and “aggressive”).
