SpamSieve 2.9.41 macOS
SpamSieve is a robust spam filter for major email clients that uses powerful Bayesian spam filtering.
SpamSieve understands what your spam looks like in order to block it all, but also learns what your legitimate messages look like to avoid confusion. SpamSieve only marks spam in your email client so you never lose any mail.
- Apple Mail
- Outlook 2011
- Outlook Express
- Eudora 5.2 or 6.x (Sponsored or Paid)
- Added support for Apple Mail on the forthcoming macOS 11.0 Big Sur. We recommend updating SpamSieve before updating to Big Sur. In any case, 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 enable the plug-in.
- Made various changes to improve SpamSieve’s filtering accuracy.
- SpamSieve now works with Apple Mail when running on an Apple Silicon Mac.
- On macOS 11, you can now hold down the Option key when installing SpamSieve’s Apple Mail plug-in to clear out any active plug-in files that may be preventing Mail from loading the plug-in. (Other third-party Mail plug-ins will be disabled but not deleted; they can be re-enabled using the Manage Plug-in… button in Mail’s preferences.) This is much easier than the former method on macOS 10.14 and 10.15 that required temporarily disabling SIP.
- Restored Web bug protection in Apple Mail on macOS 11 since it seems to fix the issue in macOS 10.15 that necessitated disabling it.
- The Apple Mail plug-in now has a stapled notarization ticket so that it can be loaded even if the Mac can’t contact Apple’s notarization servers.
- The Apple Mail plug-in installer is better at working around macOS quarantine bugs.
- It is now possible to save a diagnostic report when SpamSieve’s Dock icon is hidden (and thus the Help menu is inaccessible) by clicking a special link.
- Improved the following sections of the manual:
- Checking the Airmail Setup
- Enabling and Updating the Apple Mail Plug-In
- If Apple Mail Is Running Slowly
- If the Apple Mail Plug-In Doesn’t Appear in the List or Doesn’t Stay Enabled
- Outlook IMAP/Exchange Account Rules
- Setting Up Apple Mail
- Setting Up Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo, AOL, or Other Web Mail
- Using a Spam Mailbox on the Server
- Why does a message disappear or go back to the spam mailbox after I train it as good?
- The Setting Up Outlook section of the manual now explains that you should turn off the New Outlook switch because it does not support AppleScript.
- SpamSieve now requires macOS 10.9 or later.
- Improved the diagnostic report.
- If a duplicate Apple Mail plug-in is installed, SpamSieve now reveals it to you in Finder.
- The Apple Mail installer is better at reporting when the loaded version of the plug-in is different from the installed version, to help track down data vaults problems.
- Added a workaround for a macOS privacy performance bug.
- Fixed a regression where SpamSieve would unnecessarily update its Mail plug-in at each launch.
- If an icon file is damaged, the error message now suggests installing a fresh copy of SpamSieve.
- Fixed a bug where the text of an Apple Mail installer alert wasn’t accurate if you had relocated your Mac’s home folder.
- Fixed a bug where the tags field was inappropriately shown.
Compatibility: OS X 10.7 or later, 64-bit processor
