Hello ~ I use AppleMail and SpamSieve, have been for several years now. Several months ago I added my Gmail account to AppleMail as I decided I wanted to see it in my inbox. For some reason, every time I want to get Gmail email, I have to log in through Safari. That got old very quickly and I just disabled the account. I went to many sites to find ways to fix this, tried every thing I could find or think of, same issue.
A couple weeks ago AppleMail slowed to a crawl when booting. It would take maybe 5 minutes to load the app and display email. I wondered about this, and decided to turn off SpamSieve. Wow, AppleMail now boots instantly! And for an added bonus, Gmail works now without needed to log in through Safari, AT ALL.
I don’t believe the two issues are related to the same problem in SpamSieve, but they are both directly related to SpamSieve. I use the latest Mac OS (10.15.4) and keep all software updated religiously.
Any ideas to these two issues? How can I fix them as I don’t care much for Apple’s own spam filtering.
