Improve the accuracy of your spam filter
Authored by: Peganthyrus on Nov 03, '06 02:39:48PM
The spam filter in Apple's Mail refused to train on these things no matter how many I marked as spam. SpamSieve, however, is kicking ass. Once I got it running it's been catching all those stock-scam GIFs, as well as the completely blank ones I keep getting. And legitimate stuff with attachments makes it through with no problem.

I've been regularly checking to make sure it's not marking real mail as spam; it's been doing fine, so far. I'm an artist who does freelance work over the Internet - if I started marking email with attached GIFs as always spam, I'd be throwing away a significant chunk of my business-related correspondence!
