Bye Bye Spam
My spam intake was out of control. I was receiving about 500 messages a day, over 60% of which was spam, 20% of which was list mail, and the rest was actual mail to me. There were days where the spam was up around 80% of my daily intake. Apple Mail‘s built in junk filter simply wasn’t cutting it. It was missing most of the mail and catching good mail. That hurts the team. On top of that, the filter database became corrupted, causing numerous crashes of mail.app. Again. Bad Junk filter.
So in my plea to my various tech friends, .sara came back with a suggestion: SpamSieve. This has missed only one spam in a little over a week and has needed a bit of hand holding on accidentally classifying certain emails as spam, but it’s been great otherwise. My inbox is no longer a cluttered mess. I can breathe again. And at the end of the trial period, I think I might just buy it.
Combine that with SpamCop, and let the smackdown begin.
