You were probably experiencing nothing showing up due to the fact your email address on the test email was in the "whitelist".pviton wrote:With both K9 and poptray running, I send myself an email, subject = test.
I then ask PopTray to check my account. It does so, and retrieves the test message.
However, in k9 : the log shows that the mail was checked, and in the log everything seems OK. However, in none of k9's other tabs (Recent Emails, Storage Area, Server Check) nothing appears. Should it??? Also, in k9's Statistics section, everything's zero.
The only time emails in the whitelist show up is if you PREVIEW them or actually download them in your email client.
Now as you get email, just click the RECENT EMAIL tab and reclassify any that need to be changed. K9 will learn, and not make the same mistake again.
I suggest a rule in PopTray to mark any email with 'spam' in the subject as SPAM. This will let you have a final look before you click the 'DELETE SPAM' button to get rid of the junk. After a while, when you have trained K9 and trust it's decisions you can change the rule to DELETE and not have the spam problem any more.
Glad you were able to get it going!
