Perhaps of use to those who spend too much time/effort managing spam…
I am a most satisfied user of SpamSieve
(only rarely do I get false positives). That app, uses a Bayesian algorithm plus some other magic to determine which incoming emails are spam, and then consigns them to the Spam folder. It even color-codes them according to how "spammy" they appear to be.
But the contents of the Spam folder still must be manually sent to the trash. Ergo, my choices: 1) individually dragging the emails to the trash, or 2) “selecting all” and dragging them to the trash. But this later option opens the email and thus affirms (to the offending miscreant) the validity of my email address.
Fortunately, SpamSieve also makes a Script
that deletes the contents of the Spam folder. And that works as designed. But, it requires one to 1) launch the script and then 2) click on the Run button. Not a big deal, but I was wondering if I could streamline the process even further by adding a keyboard shortcut to the process. And voilà, Shortcuts
to the rescue. Now, the contents of my Spam folder are deleted with a (user-defined) shortcut.
1. SpamSieve sends spam to the Spam folder
2. I review and confirm that the contents are all spam
3. I execute the shortcut activating the Delete Script
And all is again, right with the world.
