You’ve got to hand it to him: Michael Tsai keeps a good thing going.

Michael Tsai’s must-have shareware program, SpamSieve, has just been updated to version 2.9.5. The new version, a 10 megabyte download, adds the following fixes and improvements:

– Updated the Apple Mail plug-in to work with Security Update 2012-004 (Snow Leopard) for Mac OS X 10.6.8. If, after installing this update, you don’t see the SpamSieve commands in Mail’s Message menu, it may be necessary to go to the SpamSieve menu and choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In.

– The AppleScripts for controlling the Griffin PowerMate seem to trigger a crashing bug in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Thus, SpamSieve’s Flash PowerMate option has been turned off. You can try re-enabling it in the preferences if desired.

– When training a message as good from Apple Mail, SpamSieve is better at figuring out which account it came from.

– Worked around problems on some Macs that could prevent SpamSieve from receiving training commands from Apple Mail on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

– Import Blocklist Regex Rules is a sample AppleScript that shows how to create blocklist rules using the contents of a text file.

– Made various improvements to the manual.

SpamSieve retails for US$30.00 and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later to install and run.

If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback, please let us know in the comments.

  1. This doesn’t fix the problem from this week’s security update does it? I have followed all steps and am still getting all of my mail in my spam folder. posted 9.21.12 @ 3pmMST.
