I'm not entirely sure, but I think this problem started with the latest SpamSieve update. In the dock, where SpamSieve puts the number of new emails (unread) over Mail's icon, the number is stuck on 3 when there are no unread emails. It does go up when new ones arrive, but never goes down or off. It isn't dire, and SpamSieve otherwise works, but I find it irritating. I have unchecked that option in the Notification panel of Preferences and quit and restarted both Mail and SpamSieve but this made no difference.
Anyone have a clue as to what is happening and a way to fix it?
