SpamSieve 2.9.31

April 30th, 2018 (SpamSieve)

Version 2.9.31 of SpamSieve is now available. This is a free update that includes the following changes:

  • Made various changes to improve SpamSieve‚Äôs filtering accuracy.
  • Fixed a database bug that could cause SpamSieve to crash when processing a particular type of spam message containing garbage Unicode characters in the subject.
  • Outlook - Filter Mailboxes now checks for new inbox messages every 1 minute by default (instead of 5), is more efficient, and is able to filter inboxes with localized names that were previously ignored.
  • Updated the Requirements and Setting Up Postbox sections of the manual. Postbox 6 no longer supports plug-ins, so we recommend continuing to use Postbox 5 for the time being or using the Apple Mail drone setup in the background.
  • The Outlook sections of the manual have been renamed to Setting Up Outlook 365 and Setting Up Outlook 2011 for clarity.
  • Improved the following sections of the manual:
  • Worked around a bug in macOS 10.13 that could cause an internal error at launch when resolving an alias.
  • The Apple Mail - Discard Spam script is better able to work around Mail slowness that could leave spam messages stranded in the trash.
  • Diagnostic reports now include more information about localizations and SpamSieve helper processes.
  • Made various minor code updates.
  • Fixed a crash reporter bug that could prevent some information from being logged.

SpamSieve 2.9.31 works with macOS 10.7 through 10.13 and requires an e-mail client. Older versions are available for older operating systems. For information about previous releases of SpamSieve, please see the version history.
