SpamSieve 2.6.6

January 23rd, 2008 (SpamSieve)

SpamSieve has been updated to version 2.6.6. This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • Made various accuracy improvements.
  • Rewrote internal corpus storage to work around a performance bug in Mac OS X 10.5 that could, in some circumstances, make SpamSieve very slow to launch.
  • Worked around a problem on Mac OS X 10.5 where the Apple Mail plug-in would sometimes try to launch multiple copies of SpamSieve (and then they’d all self-quit, leading to -609 errors).
  • Made some internal changes so that Use Growl global notification system works more reliably on Mac OS X 10.5.
  • The Flash PowerMate notification feature now works with version 2.1 of the PowerMate software.
  • If SpamSieve’s corpus file or history database is damaged, you can now hold down the Command and Option keys at launch to reset them.
  • Growl notifications are now posted from a background thread, to speed up message filtering.
  • Fixed bug where the open panel for the Import Addresses… command was slow.
  • Worked around a problem that could cause corruption of SpamSieve’s Entourage scripts.
  • Fixed rare crash when processing HTML messages.
  • If SpamSieve is unable to install its Apple Mail plug-in, it now does a better job of helping you complete the installation manually.
  • Integration with Apple Mail and Entourage no longer relies on the mydefaults command-line tool, since it had some limitations and there were occasional problems installing it.
  • The software updater is better at handling invalid downloads folders.
  • Added Dutch localization and updated the other localizations.
