SpamSieve 2.9.5

Send Article to a Friend

In answer to the recent security update released for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard (which changed how plug-ins work with Apple Mail), C-Command Software has quickly updated SpamSieve to version 2.9.5 to return its spam filtering to working order. The company notes that if you don’t see SpamSieve commands in Mail’s Message menu after updating, you may need to go to the SpamSieve menu and choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In. The update also fixes an issue with the AppleScript scripts that control Griffin Technology’s PowerMate, which in turn caused SpamSieve to crash when running 10.8 Mountain Lion (the PowerMate option has been turned off but can be re-enabled in preferences). Additionally, the release provides a workaround for some Macs where SpamSieve was prevented from receiving training commands under Mountain Lion, and the app is better at identifying from which account in Apple Mail a good message has come from.
