This indicates that MailMate (SpamSieve) is not moving them. MailMate 
does not add a prefix and therefore this probably happened server side 
except for the fact that I don't think Gmail ever adds such a prefix. 
Maybe you have used some other service/software which would do this?

I'm not quite sure which instructions you are referring to. Maybe a link 
would help.
