Mike-

Running Entourage 11.3.3 and SpamSieve 2.6.2 here. Not sure if training is working properly.

About half my spam gets properly identified, filtered and moved. When it is not, I run the Train Spam filter. The spam gets properly marked and moved, and it shows up in the log- however, the Statistics window never says less than 100% correct.

Here's where there may be a clue: almost all the spam that is not automatically put in the Junk E-Mail folder is coming to a specific address (I keep a number of aliases to my main address), and when I check the log on those, it typically says "Predicted: Spam (96)" (or some other high number)- which might explain why it feels it is 100% correct, but why is it not moving it to the Junk E-Mail box in the first place?

Thanks-
Gary

I found that the spams were being acted upon by a later rule. I set a a second SpamSieve rule to move mail categorized as Junk to the Junk Email Folder, and I expect that should take care of the issue.
