4.6.4   Using a Spam Mailbox on the Server

Normally the Spam mailbox is kept on your Mac, as this is faster and doesn’t fill up your server account with spam. If you prefer to keep the spam on your mail server (so that it’s available on all your devices), you can:

  1. Create a Spam mailbox on the IMAP or Exchange server. If you have more than one mail account, you’ll need to either create one mailbox per account or else SpamSieve will move all the trained messages to the account that does have the mailbox.
  2. Open Mail’s preferences and find the SpamSieve rule. Select the server mailbox that you want to use. (You can optionally use a separate mailbox for each account.)
  3. In Mail’s Message menu, choose SpamSieve - Change Settings. Enter the name of the mailbox created in Step 1. When it asks you, “Should messages marked using “Train as Spam” be stored in a local spam mailbox (rather than on the server)?” click No.
