I’m new to this product but already am feeling hopeful that I will begin to dig out.
I have hosted email (through MediaTemple where my website is hosted) and had a ‘Spam’ filter where all the spam (and some good emails) have been sent. It appears to be the server side spam folder (I think???).
On set up of SpamSieve, I was asked to create a new ‘Spam’ folder in the “On My Mac” section/account of my Mac Mail.
On my inbox, when I “Train as Spam” the spam goes to the new SpamSieve “Spam” folder “On My Mac”. That looks to be working correctly.
I still have all the server side spam coming into the other Spam folder. When I “Train as Spam” those messages in the other Spam folder, they appear to get processed, but they don’t move anywhere.
So I have a couple questions:
Is there something I should do with that extra (server side I think) spam folder so I only have to manage the spam from one spot?
What happens to the spam that sits in the new SpamSieve spam folder? Does it eventually get deleted? Should I leave it there forever? Should I delete it regularly?
