SpamSieve Updated to 2.7.3 with Several Fixes & Improvements

SpamSieveC-Command Software updated SpamSieve to version 2.7.3, an update for the spam mail filter that includes several fixes and some minor improvements. The update has some Entourage and Mail-specific updates, as well.

The update note from the company:

  • Rewrote and restructured the manual to make the setup and troubleshooting instructions clearer.
  • Replaced the Training Tip window with an alert that’s displayed when SpamSieve’s corpus is empty. This goes along with the more explicit guidance that ongoing training is only necessary to correct mistakes.
  • The Entourage installer no longer asks before replacing existing script files. If you want to customize the scripts (rare these days, since there are so many built-in configuration options), you should use copies with different names to avoid having SpamSieve overwrite them.
  • Changed the recommended Entourage rule setup to better handle uncertain messages. The installer now creates the Uncertain Junk category if necessary.
  • Made the Apple Mail plug-in installer more robust.
  • Worked around a problem parsing certain multipart messages.
  • Adjusted the built-in blocklist rules for better accuracy.
  • Reduced memory usage when processing message attachments.
  • Fixed a bug sorting in rules windows.
  • Fixed a bug marking incoming Entourage messages as Uncertain Junk.
  • Updated the localizations.

The update is free for registered users, and can be downloaded directly from C-Command Software, or through the SpamSieve app. The full version is priced at US$30.
