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.

Fixing Save as Adobe PDF Crashes
There have been many reported instances of the "Save as Adobe PDF" workflow crashing regardless of application, but precious few workarounds or resolutions. In troubleshooting, I discovered that there were three instances of the "Save as Adobe PDF.action" in three different locations: /Library/Automator; ~/Library/Automator; and /System/Library/Automator. By eliminating all except the version in /System/Library/Automator, the workflow started behaving, and I was able to cut PDFs directly from the Print dialog.
