I have had good results using SpamSieve
. With proper training
it is adept at detecting the kind of spam you are getting.
My experience so far is less than good. SpamSieve provides instructions of epic proportions so I figured "step by step" and "exactly what they say" would be best and that's what I did. However, I got to a point where SpamSieve highlighted a pile of my real mail, by greying it out.
At that point, I worried that I could be executing a command that deletes a bunch of mail I want, so I decided to stop everything. I removed the SpamSieve extension and, according to their Uninstall instructions, moved SpamSieve to the trash. However, my mail remained greyed out, so I did a restart.
However, all the same mail remains greyed out. Any thoughts on how to fix that?Edit:
I fixed it. All the greyed out messages had a bar across the top saying I had labeled it as Junk, so I went through the messages, one by one, and checked off "Not Junk". No more grey.
