Version 2.9.47 of SpamSieve is now available.

Save time by adding powerful spam filtering to the e-mail client on your Mac. SpamSieve gives you back your inbox, using Bayesian spam filtering to provide amazing accuracy that’s constantly improving. SpamSieve learns and adapts to your mail, so it’s able to block nearly all the junk—without putting good messages in the spam mailbox. It’s quick and easy to control SpamSieve from within Apple Mail, Airmail, Entourage, MailMate, Mailsmith, Outlook, Postbox 5, PowerMail, and more.

SpamSieve running on your Mac can keep the spam off your iPhone/iPad, and you can even train SpamSieve from your iOS device.

SpamSieve protects your privacy. It does not need access to your mail account login and does not transmit your mail data anywhere. All the processing is done on your Mac.

This is a free update that includes the following changes:

  • SpamSieve keeps track of how accurate it is and how many good and spam messages you receive.Added support for Apple Mail on the forthcoming macOS 12.1. We recommend updating SpamSieve before updating macOS. SpamSieve 2.9.47 should automatically update the installed version of its Apple Mail plug-in, and the plug-in should stay enabled. 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.
  • Made various changes to improve SpamSieve’s filtering accuracy.
  • Worked around a bug in Apple Mail that could prevent messages trained as good from moving back to the inbox or messages (particularly POP ones) trained as spam from moving to the Junk mailbox. If you continue to see either of these problems, choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu.
  • Control SpamSieve from within your mail program.Updated the Open Window script to work around an issue on macOS 12 where some windows didn’t open due to an AppleScript error.
  • Improved the following sections of the manual:
  • Improved the error handling when Apple Mail reports an error determining whether a message trained as spam is already in the Junk mailbox.
  • Improved the diagnostic report on macOS 12.
  • SpamSieve now declares notch compatibility for the new MacBook Pros.

SpamSieve 2.9.47 works with macOS 10.9 through 12.1 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.
