SpamSieve 2.9.23

Michael Tsai of C-Command Software has released SpamSieve 2.9.23, adding support for Apple Mail in OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan. The spam filtering utility works around a rare bug in El Capitan that would start to launch SpamSieve but not load any of its code — particularly if Apple Mail was auto-launched by the system after a reboot — leaving it stuck in a partially launched state. The release also updates the Server Junk Mailbox script so you can move spam messages to per-account spam mailboxes, makes the statistics database more resistant to errors, and improves error handling if Apple Mail gets disconnected in the middle of processing a message.
