For a while now, likely including and pre-Big Sur, whenever I actually go through my Spam box message-by-message, when I click on one message is initially loads with the spam bar, the off yellow bar that includes “Load Remote Content” and “Move to Inbox”, but then the message pane “refreshes” and loads like normal.
I am then reminded of this bug and annoyed, because I inevitably leaked information due to remote content loading.
I have 3 IMAP accounts, two Gmail based and then one third party IMAP that gets no meaningful traffic. If any spam is going to it I’d be surprised, but the significant majority of them are no doubt those coming to the Spam addresses I’ve had and used for over a decade now. (Insert old man yelling at cloud here.)
Why does this refresh happen? Unless I explicitly remember to click outside of a message and then ⌘a to delete them, or right click them first and use that menu to delete them, is the only way I can manage spam messages, and this means messages I’m on the fence about, but ultimately have to delete, still leak information due to the afore-described behavior.
