    Hiya All,

    As a result of the recent email worm virus I thought I'd purchase McAfee's Spam Killer application.

    However, I'm not sure that it is working 100%.

    Should I not have MS Outlook running as well as SpamKiller at the same time?

    I usually have MS Outlook running all the time and I've noticed that some Spam e-mail is getting through and not appearing within the SpamKiller windows. I then can't find an option anywhere to mark email from that sender as Spam as it has already been downloaded to my webclient. The only way I can see to do this is to resend/forward the offending email to myself, immediately log out of Outlook and wait to see the mail in the window of SpamKiller, then create a new filter for that email...????

    Surely there's an easier way than doing that every time I get new spam?

    Does anyone have any advice please...? thanks

    John

    Not sure about McAfee's Spam killer, but I have been using a spam killer called Ella for Outlook for about 3 weeks now and very impressed with the results. No Spam killer will work 100% effectively but Ella gets most of the spam sent to me and is very easy to train.

    Just a thought incase you don't get McAfee's working properly.
    You can download Ella here, Only works for Outlook not express.
