To hide SpamSieve’s icon from the Dock and the Command-Tab application switcher, click the special link below:

SpamSieve will automatically remember these settings when you update to a new version.

A future version of SpamSieve will include a preferences checkbox for more easily hiding and showing SpamSieve’s Dock icon, as well as a way to access this preference while SpamSieve’s Dock icon and menu bar are hidden.

If the SpamSieve Icon Is Still In Your Dock

macOS 10.14 and later include a section of the Dock for recent applications, and this can include the icons even of applications that have hidden their icons. To hide SpamSieve from this section, first quit SpamSieve. Then you can either:

Opening Windows From Apple Mail

When SpamSieve’s Dock icon is hidden, its menu bar is inaccessible. Therefore, a new command called SpamSieve - Open Window will appear in Apple Mail’s Message menu after quitting and relaunching Apple Mail. This lets you configure SpamSieve’s preferences, view the statistics, and access other parts of SpamSieve’s user interface. With other mail programs, you will need to use the Open Window script in order to do that.
