3.2   Setting Up Airmail

  1. Make sure that you are using Airmail 1.3.1 (223) or later.

  2. From the Airmail menu, choose Preferences….

  3. Click on the Accounts icon at the top of the window. For each IMAP account in the list:

    1. Click on the More tab and look in the Server sync section.
    2. Make sure Download message bodies by default is checked.
    3. Make sure Download all attachments by default is checked.

    POP accounts do not have the Server sync section, so you can skip this step for them.

  4. Click on the Advanced icon at the top of the window and make sure that Use SpamSieve is checked.

  5. Now proceed to the Do an Initial Training section.

    • To train SpamSieve with spam messages, select the messages, Control-click, and choose SpamSieve - Train as Spam from the contextual menu. (Do not use the Mark as Spam command.)
    • To train SpamSieve with good messages, select the messages, Control-click, and choose SpamSIeve - Train as Good from the contextual menu. (Do not use the Mark as Not Spam command.)

SpamSieve will process new mail automatically. Messages that it thinks are spam will be moved to the Junk or Spam folder. Airmail will automatically launch SpamSieve when there are new messages that need to be filtered or when you train messages as spam or as good.
