PowerMail - Redirect Good Mail

Summary: Moves spam messages to the Spam folder and redirects good messages to another address.
Requires: SpamSieve, PowerMail
Install Location: PowerMail Files/Custom Scripts
Last Modified: 2010-11-27


Create a mail filter that executes this AppleScript, and use it instead of your normal PowerMail spam rule. Then, the spam messages will be put in the Spam folder, and the good messages will be redirected to another account. For instance, you could leave this running on your Mac so that when you check your second mail account from the road—with a PowerBook or handheld—you don’t have to sift through the spam.
