I recently switched my Gmail account from POP to IMAP. I’m using Mail.app. For one thing, while set up as POP, the gmail spam never gets copied to your machine, so it’s not really an issue (and their filtering seems very efficient, btw; never seen a false positive).
Now, set up as IMAP, the gmail spam appears in the local Gmail mailbox in Mail.app (in a “spam” sub-mailbox), but doesn’t seem to get noticed by SpamSieve. In other words, I get the little number icon next to that mailbox, but the messages just stay there. If I select them and tell SS to “train as spam”, they get moved to the main Junk folder. Is there any way to make that happen automatically, like with my POP accounts?
I have just gone into my Rules and edited the SpamSieve rule to specifically check the Gmail account, on top of the primary All Messages criterion. Is that a possible solution, or not necessary at all? If it’s the latter, what do I need to do to get it working right???
Thanks very much in advance!
