It sounds like that account is filtering for spam/junk one the server, so it never arrives to MailMate for SpamSieve filtering. If I am right, you would have to disable filtering on the server and let your local SpamSieve deal with it. The server is likely adding headers for whatever filtering it is doing, so if all you’re looking for is headers to sort by, or whatever, something may already be there.
