- SpamSieve 2.9.21 (released September 28) is fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.10.5 and Mac OS X 10.11. After updating, see this page if you don’t see the SpamSieve commands in Apple Mail’s Message menu.
- If messages don’t move when you train them using Apple Mail on Mac OS X 10.11, see If Messages Don’t Move When Trained.
- If want to use a pre-release version of Mac OS X or update to the latest release version as soon as it’s ready, check out the SpamSieve public beta.
- Microsoft Outlook 2016 cannot automatically filter new messages through SpamSieve. Please see this forum post for workarounds and how you can ask Microsoft to bring this feature back.
- It’s best to update to the latest version of SpamSieve before updating Mac OS X, so make sure that you’ve set your Mac not to update itself without asking you.
- There’s lots of information in the SpamSieve manual, such as the list of supported mail programs and OS versions, setup instructions for the different mail programs, and a section on iPhone spam filtering.
- For the best filtering accuracy, follow the instructions to do an initial training and to correct all the mistakes.
- Are lots of spam messages (or more than before) ending up in your inbox? Even if SpamSieve is catching some of your spam, there’s a good chance that there’s a setup problem. Just fix your settings, and the accuracy will return to normal.
- Wondering why you see spam in a Junk mailbox in addition to SpamSieve’s Spam mailbox? This is probably because of a server junk filter. Please see this page for more information about how this happens and how to cope with it.
