    Default New user question

    Ok.. I'm on Mac oS High Sierra running mac mail

    Someone hacked my email and i'm getting several spams per minute

    So giving this a try.

    I set it up and everything looked good. Ive already got nearly 100 in spam folder

    My question is: How long does the training take? When will I know training is done? Then what happens after training is done? Do good emails goto iNbox and bad to spam still

    I was running for an hour and then realized I didn't disable mac mail junk. Which I now did. I then went back into Spam folder and did a select all t hen pulled down to train as spam

    Am I missing anything

    The initial training is done whenever you choose. I recommend starting with a few hundred messes, about 65% spam. After that, training is ongoing in that you should alway correct all the mistakes.

    There is no separate training phase. As soon as you finish installation, it will filter the spam messages to the Spam mailbox and the good messages to the inbox. The only difference is that the accuracy improves with more training.

    Yes, I just recommend that you train it with a few more good messages, so that you start out with 65% spam in the corpus.

    That’s based on the fact that you received 83 spam messages in only a fraction of a day, so it’s extrapolating what it would be for 24 hours.

    Please send in a diagnostic report and more information about the message in question.

    Default drag report

    Attached is the diag report - oh wait it won't let me attach (based on format). ON my desktop its a tbz file. How you want me to send it to you

    email came from: noreply@dmail.datingfactory.com I see several from that sender

    Default spam...

    So as mentioned my email was obtained and probably via BOT i'm being signed up for everything and anything

    I'm getting approx 5 every few minutes

    Is this something SpamSieve can help with? I know it won't prevent them

    But it will with some intelligence move them to spam folder.

    At what point do I remove the spam sieve rule from mac mail preferences - the one saying EVERYTHIGN goes to spam

    Never (unless you are uninstalling SpamSieve).

    Thanks for sending the diagnostic report. It looks like that message, and a bunch of the other ones that you’ve trained recently, were ones that SpamSieve had already automatically caught as spam (according to the log). So the issue may be that Mail is encountering an error moving the messages out of the inbox. (Do they show up with a colored background, indicating that SpamSieve had classified them as spam?) It may help to create a mailbox called Spam inside your IMAP account and change the SpamSieve rule in Mail to move the messages to that mailbox instead.
