Version 2.9.1 of SpamSieve is now available. This is a free update that includes the following changes:

  • Added support for Microsoft Outlook 2011 SP2 (a.k.a. 14.2.x). If SpamSieve can detect that you were using Outlook 2011 before, and that SP2 has been installed, SpamSieve will auto-update its scripts automatically. Otherwise, you can choose Install Outlook Scripts from the SpamSieve menu. Either way, the SpamSieve rules in Outlook will continue to work without modification.
  • SpamSieve now tries to detect whether its Apple Mail plug-in is damaged and auto-heal the installed copy if necessary.
  • If there’s an error updating SpamSieve’s Apple Mail plug-in, it now reports more information to try to diagnose the problem.
  • If the Apple Mail plug-in detects that it’s damaged, it will alert the user to download and install a fresh copy.
  • SpamSieve now checksums the Outlook script files (both the installed and built-in copies) to detect whether they are damaged.
  • Made a change to eliminate a particular cause of false positives for some users.
  • SpamSieve no longer triggers Mac OS X’s “accept incoming network connections” firewall dialog.
  • Added some exception guards to work around bugs in the Growl SDK.
  • When an unexpected error occurs and no stack trace is available, SpamSieve will now try to report the approximate location.
  • Improved the What information should I include when I report a problem? section of the manual.
