    Default SpamSieve for Outlook 365 Setup for multiple POP3 Accounts.

    Dear Users, please advise if i have setup this software correctly. I am using multiple POP3 Accounts for 3 different domains in my outlook 365 for mac.

    I have followed the basic instructions i.e installing scripts etc. on 2nd step , I created the folder "On my computer"-"inbox"-"inboxspamsieve" and in rules settings, I have set like as below:-

    First I created the main rule as per help instructions, this rule is as below:-
    Rule Name = inboxSpamSieve(inbox)
    When a new message arrives:
    Folder is inbox(on my computer)
    Do the following
    Move Message = inboxSpamSieve(on my computer)

    Second Rule is distribute the domain emails to specific folder names
    Rule Name = ABC-inbox
    When a new message arrives:
    Any To Recipient is Folder is "rob@abc.com"
    Any To Recipient is Folder is "sam@abc.com"
    Any To Recipient is Folder is "garry@abc.com"
    Do the following
    Move Message = ABC-inbox (on my computer)

    Will this rule work as above ? Will it filter main inbox and then from main inbox, it filter again by distributing emails to specific folder.

    What i want is first Spamsieve should check all mails coming in my main inbox folder which is inbox(on my computer) and if mail is junk, send to junk folder and if safe, keep it in main Inbox folder and after that second rules applies which distribute the emails coming from 3 different domain emails i.e. info@abc.com, info@123.com and info@xyz.com to send emails into three different inbox subfolders which are ABC-Inbox, 123-Inbox and XYZ-inbox.

    Please advise.

    For a POP account, the rule should instead look like the one shown in Step 6d, with “Account Is AccountName”.

    That won’t work because the messages need to be in InboxSpamSieve for SpamSieve to filter them. And after it’s done that, it will move them to Inbox.

    Is it possible for you to use IMAP instead of POP? Then the messages would automatically end up in separate folders (inboxes) for each account.

    Default Multiple domains under POP

    I am running 3 different POP accounts under 3 different domains and am using Outlook for Mac V.16.x.x

    The instructions under "Setting up Outlook 365" recommends having one InboxSpamSieve folder under On My Computer

    At the moment I have filters that move emails into 3 different folders depending on their domains, example:-

    jojo@banana.com -----> Banana Folder

    tom@plum.com ------> Plum Folder

    zipy@peach.com -----> Peach Folder

    How can I setup one InboxSpamSieve folder and after SpamSieve has done its thing, more the mails to their associated folders ?

    Is there an alternative way to solve this problem ?

    I was hoping that SpamSieve would work in realtime when emails are coming in and before filters are applied to them to sort them out into the right folders.

    Unfortunately, there’s no automated means to have Outlook apply its rules later (after the messages have already been received).

    One idea I had is that you could set up your rules to move the messages to InboxSpamSieveBanana, InboxSpamSievePlum, etc. And then SpamSieve would scan these folders as well, and move the good messages to Banana, Plum, etc. Would that be useful to you?

    This is how SpamSieve worked with previous versions of Outlook (and the way it works with other mail clients), but unfortunately the current version of Outlook removed the ability to do that.

    Yes, that would definitely be useful. Could you kindly give me instructions on how to setup the folders in Outlook. Is it that SpamSieve scans all folders that start with the name InboxSpamSieve(xyz), where xyz is the name of the folder (in the same location as the in-boxes) where the good mail will be moved to. The bad mail will be moved to the common spam folder in Outlook. Is that correct ?

    I understand. Out of interest, which mail client do you think is the best after Outlook ? I am on the Apple platform, they have their own mail client which may be quite good, never tried it.

    I wanted to ask, if a good email ends up in the spam folder from one of my 3 domains or their associated InboxSmapSieve(domain name) folders, when I teach SpamSieve that it is not spam will that email be returned into the correct final inbox e.g. Banana, Plum or Peach ?

    I also have a personal gmail account under POP, so can I do the same for my gmail account ? - So InboxSpamSieve(Gmail) for SpamSieve to check and then all good email will end up in a folder called "Gmail".
