View Full Version : Moving spam messages directly to the trash

How do I set this up to automatically dump spam into the Trash?

I cannot seem to figure it out.

Generally, this can be done by editing the SpamSieve rule in your mail program so that it moves the messages to the trash instead of the spam folder. If you're using a POP account with Entourage, you can use the Change Settings command (http://c-command.com/spamsieve/manual-ah/the-change-settings-com) to set this. If you're using Mailsmith, see the "Spam Handling" pane of the preferences. If you're using Eudora, I don't think there's a way to change it; the spam will always go to the Junk mailbox.

Thanks - actually, SpamSieve is not filtering anything at this point, that is my issue.

I see--those statistics show that SpamSieve isn't seeing any of your incoming messages. Please check the setup (http://c-command.com/spamsieve/manual-ah/why-is-spamsieve-not-ca) in your mail program.

Also, once you get the setup right, you'll see much better accuracy if you reset SpamSieve's corpus and use the recommended numbers of spam and good messages (http://c-command.com/spamsieve/manual-ah/using-spamsieve-with-yo) in the initial training.

OK I tried all that and it is still not working.

I will have to play with it a bit this evening when I have time.

Not as simple and easy as I had hoped, sadly.
