C-Command Software has released SpamSieve 2.9.8 with a variety of improvements to the app’s filtering accuracy and a change to the Train as Good command in Apple Mail, which now considers the message’s CC recipients when determining the correct destination inbox. The spam-filtering utility has been updated to handle the recently released OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion (see “OS X 10.8.5 Fixes Nasty Text Rendering Bug,” 12 September 2013), but not the upcoming OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The release also improves how the installer works around incorrect Apple Mail folder permissions, removes unused code from the Apple Mail plug-in, and updates several sections of the manual.

Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon
If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.
