6.6.2   What can I do if the corpus is damaged?

A damaged corpus database can prevent SpamSieve from launching or cause it to report errors. Corpus database damage can be caused by crashes or disk errors or if you are storing SpamSieve‘s files in the cloud and using them with more than one Mac at the same time (which is not supported). To fix this:

  1. Quit both your mail program and SpamSieve.

  2. If you have a backup from before the damage occurred, you can replace the folder:

    /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/SpamSieve/Corpus.spamsieve-corpus

    with a working copy. See the How can I open the Library folder? section for how to find this file.

  3. If you don’t have a backup, you can delete the damaged Corpus.spamsieve-corpus folder, and SpamSieve will start a new one. You will need to re-train SpamSieve as described in the Do an Initial Training section. You can also re-train SpamSieve using messages in the Log window.
