My mail goes through Comcast. I use the built in Mac Mail app to connect to it (IMAP). It has two ways of handling SPAM..moving it to "the spam folder"/deleting it OR not doing that. IF I have comcast filtering spam, then alert messages I get from a forum (not unlike the ones that this place sends) get caught in the filter. Those messages (and the real spam) goes into the Spam Folder in mac mail. IF I don't have comcast filtering spam, then the messages I want go to my inbox....as does real spam like physhing emails, sex scams, etc. I do have Mac Mail's spam filtering on...but it doesn't seem to do anything but listen to Comcast's marking. I've tried to set actions/rules in mac mail that would intercept the mail messages and send them to the inbox rather than going into the Spam folder. That didn't work. I've tried to set "custom spam actions" to send the forum messages to send the messages to the inbox..doesn't work. Marking the messages as not spam in mac mail does jack for future mails. Marking the messages as not spam in comcast mail does jack for future mails. Comcast's "Security department" that's supposed to fix these things won't fix it. IS there some way to beef up how Mac Mail's spam filter works?
