I’m using whitelist and blocklist, but I never manually added, removed or modified anything in there. Actually, I opened those two lists the first time today. And I found more than 8000 entries in the whitelist, most of them were checked (so active, I guess).
I just received an email that is 100% spam, but has not been moved by SpamSieve. So I searched for the sender name in the whitelist – and it was in there! Does SpamSieve automatically whitelist senders and addresses of spam emails that I manually delete, so don’t train as spam (I did that in the past)? And also, does this mean that although I maybe trained a message from a sender in the whitelist as spam, the whitelist entry overwrites it and these messages will always and ever come through?
So ad idea would be to reduce the whitelist to a list as short as possible, right? Maybe order the table by “Hits” and only keep the ones that are used more than 10 times.
This brings me to another problem: I do not see the “Hits”-column in my whitelist. I know it exists, since I have just seen it on a friends computer. Right behind the “√”-column I have a super narrow column (3-4px) with no caption, maybe it’s just screwed up? But I can’t change width manually, won’t get the appropriate cursor even. What can I do here?
Any tip would be appreciated.
