This is a free update that includes the following changes:

  • Added support for Apple Mail on the forthcoming macOS 12.0. (An additional update was required due to late changes in Monterey Developer Beta 9.) We recommend updating SpamSieve before updating to Monterey. SpamSieve 2.9.46 should automatically update the installed version of its Apple Mail plug-in, however if you don’t see the SpamSieve commands in Apple Mail’s Message menu, be sure to choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu and to enable the plug-in.
  • Control SpamSieve from within your mail program.When you train a message as good, and SpamSieve is moving the message back to the inbox, it’s better at handling localized inbox names.

  • Improved the following sections of the manual:
  • The Apple Mail - Remote Training script is now able to find training mailboxes that are nested in other folders.

  • Worked around a problem where an internal Apple Mail error could prevent messages from moving to the inbox when you trained them as good.
  • Fixed a bug where the Apple Mail - Remote Training script could fail after Switching From the Spam Mailbox to the Junk Mailbox.

  • Control SpamSieve from within your mail program.Added support for Apple Mail on the forthcoming macOS 12.0. (An additional update was required due to late changes in Monterey Developer Beta 6.) We recommend updating SpamSieve before updating to Monterey. SpamSieve 2.9.45 should automatically update the installed version of its Apple Mail plug-in, however if you don’t see the SpamSieve commands in Apple Mail’s Message menu, be sure to choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu and to enable the plug-in.

  • Set which filters SpamSieve uses.Made various changes to improve SpamSieve’s filtering accuracy.

  • On macOS 10.15 and later, we now recommend configuring Apple Mail and SpamSieve to move spam messages to the special All Junk mailbox rather than to the Spam mailbox. This simplifies many setup procedures and works around some Mail bugs that, in rare cases, can cause spam messages that SpamSieve has caught to appear in the inbox as well in as the Spam mailbox or to be deleted instead of moved to the Spam mailbox.

    New installations of SpamSieve will use the Junk mailbox by default, and the manual has been rewritten with this new setup in mind.

    If you are already using SpamSieve with a Spam mailbox and are not encountering the bugs mentioned above, you can continue with your current setup. It will keep working the same way as before, without your having to change anything.

    The Switching From the Spam Mailbox to the Junk Mailbox section of the manual explains all of this in more detail and describes how you can update an existing SpamSieve setup if desired.

  • When you enter Deleted Messages as the spam mailbox name for training in Change Settings (Apple Mail), SpamSieve now moves the messages to the account-specific trash mailbox instead of to the local one, working around a macOS bug in that could cause the message to be deleted instead of moved.

  • Added the Separating Spam Caught by SpamSieve and Server Filters section of the manual.

  • Improved the following sections of the manual:

  • Added the Apple Mail - Rescue Good Messages script, which moves good messages that were incorrectly caught by a server junk filter from the Junk mailbox to the inbox. This is similar to the old Apple Mail - Server Junk Mailbox script but is easier to set up because you can just install the script file without having to edit it first.

  • The Apple Mail - Remote Training script now works when SpamSieve is configured to use the special Junk mailbox. In such cases, you can now download the script and use it directly. There is no need to edit it, as with previous versions.

  • The Apple Mail - SaneBox script now works when SpamSieve is configured to use the special Junk mailbox.

  • The Apple Mail - Move If Spam script now works when SpamSieve is configured to use the special Junk mailbox.

  • Improved the error reporting when you’ve launched an incomplete copy of SpamSieve from a Carbon Copy Cloner SafetyNet folder.

SpamSieve 2.9.45 works with macOS 10.9 through 12.0 and requires an e-mail client. Older SpamSieve versions are available for older versions of macOS. In-depth information about SpamSieve is available in the manual.

  • The Copy command is much faster when lots of e-mail messages are selected.
  • Worked around a macOS 11 issue where sometimes a custom folder icon or emoji tag abbreviation in the source list would be drawn as if the window were in the background, when it wasn’t. Also, they no longer dim when the window is only behind an inspector or another application’s floating window, such as OmniFocus’s Quick Entry.
  • Made a change to prevent macOS from allowing the volume containing an open library to be ejected.
  • Fixed a regression where built-in items in the source list could be incorrectly shown as editable.
  • Fixed some regressions when renaming in the source list. Pressing Esc now discards the edit in progress. Changes are saved when you click away or close the window, not just when you press Return or Tab. In-progress changes are no longer lost when a background change occurs.
  • Fixed a bug where PDF attachments in RTFD files could become invisible when using the RespectImageDPI esoteric preference.
  • Fixed a bug where an internal error could occur when resizing images in an RTFD file for display.
