Mac OS X Mail App

Hi - I have had Popfile running on my Mac for many years now and it works brilliantly. Until now I have been feeding mail into Thunderbird with no problems. I have recently changed to using the built in Mail App to take advantage of some features but can't get the App to recognise the X-Text-Classification header. I followed the instructions here http://email.about.com/od/macosxmailtips/qt/et092004.htm which all seem to make sense ("X-Text-Classification" "Is equal to" "spam") but it doesn't seem to take any notice of them. Is there something I am missing please?

    Have you checked that the messages received by Mail App still have the "X-Text-Classification" header?

    If the X-Text-Classification header is present, try changing the Mail App rule to

    "X-Text-Classification" "contains" "spam"

    as this may work better than looking for an exact match to "spam"

    (I use Thunderbird so I don't know which filter options are supported by Mail App)

      Thanks for the response. Yes, the Popfile install is unchanged from when I used Thunderbird and the headers are there. Setting to "contains" doesn't seem to make a difference. Perhaps I need to ask on an Apple forum as the Popfile bit is working fine.

        If you can't get it working you could switch to tagging the subject line with the classification.
