SpamSieve is a robust spam filter for major email clients that uses powerful Bayesian spam filtering.

SpamSieve understands what your spam looks like in order to block it all, but also learns what your legitimate messages look like to avoid confusion. SpamSieve only marks spam in your email client so you never lose any mail.
What's New
Version 2.9.13:
  • Works with Apple Mail under Mac OS X 10.9.2. It’s easiest if you update to SpamSieve 2.9.13 before updating to Mac OS X 10.9.2. In any case, if you don’t see the SpamSieve commands in Apple Mail’s Message menu, be sure to choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu. Otherwise, with the SpamSieve plug-in not installed, Mail will move good messages to the spam mailbox
  • Made various changes to improve SpamSieve’s filtering accuracy.
  • On Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Apple Mail is slower at moving messages to the Spam mailbox when you choose SpamSieve - Train as Spam and the inbox when you choose SpamSieve - Train as Good. This version of SpamSieve includes some changes to speed this up. It also includes workarounds to move messages faster by using GUI scripting instead of regular AppleScript. To enable the workarounds, please see the AppleMailTrainSpamGUIScripting and AppleMailTrainGoodGUIScripting options in the Esoteric Preferences section of the manual.
  • Documented the AppleMailPlugInSetIsJunk esoteric preference, as it can be used to speed up filtering on Mac OS X 10.9.
  • Improved the Setting Up Airmail section of the manual to recommend not deleting messages from the Spam mailbox when using Airmail 1.3.1 (223).
  • Added the Why does the “Junk” mailbox appear in Apple Mail? section to the manual.
  • Improved the Setting Up a MailMate Drone and iPhone Spam Filtering sections of the manual.
  • The AppleMailTrainSpamGUIScripting esoteric preference now works if you’ve selected the trash as your mailbox for trained spam messages.
  • Optimized and fixed a possible Apple Mail crash when using the Setting Up an Apple Mail Drone configuration.
  • SpamSieve is now able to log more diagnostic information to help track down problems with Apple Mail.
  • When a Mac OS X update disables SpamSieve’s Apple Mail plug-in, and your Mac is running in a language other than English, SpamSieve is better able to detect this and auto-reinstall the plug-in.
  • SpamSieve now cleans up empty folders of disabled Apple Mail bundles.
  • When training messages from Microsoft Outlook, SpamSieve now logs errors to the Console. You can also enable extended error logging via the OutlookScriptDebug default.
Version 2.9.13:
  • Works with Apple Mail under Mac OS X 10.9.2. It’s easiest if you update to SpamSieve 2.9.13 before updating to Mac OS X 10.9.2. In any case, if you don’t see the SpamSieve commands in Apple Mail’s Message menu, be sure to choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu. Otherwise, with the SpamSieve plug-in not more...

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.

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

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?

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)

I don't understand why this is $30? An elaborate email client like Postbox costs $10. I'm really like to support small developers, but the price is really steep. Does anyone know if there's an education discount?

SpamSieve has been in continuous development for 11 years, with lots of free updates, because we charge enough to be able to keep improving it and providing great customer support. Please contact sales@c-command.com for information about the 33% educational discount.

Okay, well I didn't understand the price but now I do. Being a fairly hard up grad student I appreciate the education discount. After using spam sieve for a couple months now, I can say it's the best filter I've ever tried. It's worth every penny and more.

Great software, easy to set up and train. Grab the 30-day free demo. It's the missing link for Mac's Mail.

Don't leave home without it... in other words: don't set up your email client without it.

My SpamSieve stats below tell it all. In fact through the automatic training it recently went up to 100%. I can't even recall the last time I found a SPAM message in my inbox folder.

Question: I might be going from Entourage 2008 to Postbox 3.X. Does SpamSieve work with PB 3.X.? The above requirements (and on your website) only list Postbox 2.0 as being compatible. Thanks.

Oh, and additional question: If I move to Postbox can I keep using the SpamSieve Corpus that already has been trained by Entourage?

C-Command Software (developer) replied on 13 Apr 2013
Yes, SpamSieve works with both Postbox 2.x and 3.x It will automatically retain the same corpus and rules that you've been using.

To set the record straight, my problem with the plugin not loading in Apple Mail under SpamSieve 2.7.7. has been fixed. It appears to have been associated with my use of Xslimmer, not with any fault in the plug-in. I should note that the developer responded to my inquiry in less than 15 minutes. Great program, great support.
