Delete spam by IP address in Mail.app
Authored by: fferitt25 on Mar 12, '11 05:38:08PM

Seems like a lot of exrtra work to filter out a new message every time.

I agree if you use the junk / not junk toggles - Mail learns over time.

Also - it's much easier to click a button to remove the offending eMail than to manually create a new filter every time.

Unless you set up a Script to do it - which in turn simply seems like overkill.

Finally - why are you bothering to pour through your Spam List anyway ?

I've had my current computer for 5 years now - set up Mail and left it alone except for a few tweaks over the years for different OSes or Address updates.

I've never bothered to look at my Spam / Block List.

Maybe if I ever accidentally blocked a friend or something - but if someone I know sends a message and it is detected as Spam by Mail - it typically is flagged as such - the text is colored some funky light brown - and it either lands in the Inbox or the Spam Folder and there is an indicator of new mail either way.

If I realize the error I click on it and mark it as not spam - done.
