Mail Rules

Dealing with the iCloud Junk Mailbox

Dealing with the iCloud Junk Mailbox

One of iCloud’s annoying features is its server-side spam filtering. Besides the utterly opaque side of the filtering, where it may simply refuse to deliver a message to a recipient based on the content, there’s the side that delivers other messages it judges to be spam to your Junk mailbox.

Forwarding Messages in Mail Using Rules

If you’re using Mail’s rules to forward a message and can’t figure out why the message isn’t being sent, check the number of addresses you’re forwarding to. On OS X 10.7.4, at least, it seems that Mail doesn’t like more than one address and will generate an error to that effect in Console:

8/20/2012 2:01:57.336 PM Mail: exception raised in routeMessages: -[IMAPMessageWithCache libraryID]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x7fb423801ca0

Use a separate rule for each address.
