C-Command Software has released SpamSieve 2.9.14 with support for Apple Mail when running the recently released OS X 10.9.3 Mavericks (for more on the update, see “10.9.3 Restores Local Contact/Calendar Sync, Improves 4K Support,” 15 May 2014). C-Command notes that if you’ve already updated to 10.9.3 Mavericks you should make sure to choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu (otherwise Mail will move good messages to the spam mailbox without consultation with SpamSieve). The release also does away with the file size limit associated with the Import Addresses command, checks permissions on more of Apple Mail’s folders, no longer prompts to access the system contacts database if Use Mac OS X Address Book is unchecked, and improves the training commands in Apple Mail’s localized mailbox names.

Spin Through Toolbar View Options
Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.
But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.
