I have been a SS user for many years and feel it is a wonderful program, the best of its class.
I have made no changes in my email program (GyazMail) or OS (10.4.x, now 11) in recent months and I have the most up-to-date SS. In the last few weeks, SS has performed much moor poorly than it ever has.
Where I used to get maybe 2-3 spam messages invading my inbox a month, i now get 5-15 a day! The Statistics tell the tale: from when I started using SS to now, the “SpamSieve Accuracy” registers 97.9% correct; in the last two weeks, that stat deteriorated to 85.3%.
I’m puzzled why the degradation occurred, and, even more urgent, want my SS with peak performance back.
Just now, I have set the spam-catching strategy preference to the “most aggressive” setting. Is there anything else I can do? Why is this happening since the beginning of the year?
