Although it is expensive, SpamSieve is a terrific, useful application. I would buy it again.

This app is worth every penny of its cost. The developer, Michael Tsai, is a genius at what he does.
If you want to get rid of spam, you can not do better than SpamSieve. I would hate email if it weren't for this product.

In general, this program is indispensable. I have only one quibble with it. A utility program that runs in the background should NEVER have a dock icon (dock space is far too valuable to wasted on such programs, and a developer should bloody well know and respect this fact). Yes, the documentation tells you how to get rid of it using Terminal, but that probably places an unreasonable burden on some users. It should ship with the dock switched off.

Thanks for the review. The problem with never having a Dock icon is that then there would also be no menus and no way access the preferences, installer, or help. An alternative would be to have a menu bar icon, but space in the menu bar is even more limited and (in my opinion) valuable than in the Dock. Do you see another option? That said, I agree that there should be an easier way to hide the Dock icon for those who want to, and work is underway to allow choosing between a Dock or menu bar icon without using Terminal.

Since there is at least one utility (Bartender) that allows users to ride herd on their menu bar icons, I think you may be exaggerating the problem. Why not a simple Preference choice allowingl the individual user to display dock icon or menubar icon as he chooses?

That is in fact what I'm working on.

Love this app. Its always promptly updated. It does a terrific job of sorting the wheat from the chaff. It is expensive, but you get your money's worth.

This is an excellent product. I haven't used any competitors but this one is perfect for me. It has few false goods and is easy to train. Almost no false bads. And the questionable ones show up as notifications. It shovels out hundreds of spams per hour.

I don't know of a company that updates it's software as fast as C-Command does to stay compliant with Apple's current updates.

C-Command Software Rocks!

Great Mail.app plugin, really enjoying it!

One feature suggestion: Could we customize the keyboard shortcuts used for helping SpamSieve "learn" about good mails and spam?

Yes, you can change the keyboard shortcuts in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Application Shortcuts.

My major objection to Sparrow used to be, and my major objection to Airmail still is, that they didn't/don't do a good job of handling spam. I wish the developer of Spam Sieve would add Airmail to his "Works with" list!

Some e-mail clients are extensible enough (e.g. AppleScript or plug-in support) that we can add SpamSieve support to them directly. Others, such as those mentioned above, need cooperation from the e-mail client developer. The good news is that we've been working with the Airmail developer, and the current beta of Airmail has built-in support for SpamSieve:

I was very relucent to plunk down $30 for this, I struggled with Spam for 18 months. Fighting with our work host trying their white/black list, but finding far to often that I was not getting emails at all.

I was dealing with 30-60 spam emails a day that I just couldn't stop. I finally broke down and bought it. Now about 4 months later most of those junk mails are gone and the few I still get are taken care of quickly and painlessly by SpamSieve.

Installation and usage was very well documented and I was up and running very quickly with it.

My only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner. Yeah I'm a tightwad over buying software (call it being burned to many times) but this company seems to have a very solid reputation for customer service and not nickle and diming for every upgrade (unlike an unnamed password management app)
