Switching Spamsieve from Mail to Mailmate on the same Mac

Reported by Jo Spencer | April 1st, 2016 @ 11:08 AM

Hi Support,

Apologies if this is blatantly obvious, but I can't find reference to it in the support documentation.

I'm using Mail on my Mac Mini to run SpamSieve as a drone - I access email from my MBP and iPhone when out of office (regularly). I want to use MailMate as the drone instead, as Mail seems very slow at training after waking up (I will submit a sample report next time this happens). Mail is my main email client, so this quickly becomes frustrating. I also prefer the integration MailMate has for SpamSieve.

Is it simply a case of turning off the Mail rules for SpamSieve and following instructions to set up MailMate as a drone (http://c-command.com/spamsieve/help/setting-up-a-mailmate-d)? I'm uncertain if anything needs to be done with the corpus - I'd rather not have to re-train SpamSieve!
