Takes a long time after marking SPAM

I’ve got one Yahoo folder that continues to miss SPAM in Apple Mail. I’m using SpamSieve V2.97 on OS 10.8.3. When I go to mark the emails as SPAM it take about 5 minutes until I can regain control of the Mail program. Apple’s Mail program never crashes it just hangs. I can move the windows around but I can’t click into anything.
One note. I did just recently install “Dashlane” password protection software within my three browsers (Chrome, Firefox and Safari). Not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Anyone else out there experiencing this issue?

What do you mean by folder? Apple Mail only applies rules (such as SpamSieve) to the inbox, not other folders. So this may be normal.

Please see Sending in a “Sample” Report.

Not that I’m aware of.

Hi Peter,

I never heard back from you. Are you still experiencing this problem?

The original poster never got back to me, so I’m assuming that his problem is solved. For those who are finding this page via a Web search, please see the Faster Apple Mail Training help page to learn why it sometimes takes a long time to train messages and how you can fix that.
