Anti spam

I have McAfee Total Protection and am wondering if I can make it more sensetive to spam. Today, I had an issue with possible hacking/phishing from an e-mail. I contacted McAfee about this and the person with whom I chatted was most helpful and kind in addressing my concerns. Since having received the unsolicited e-mail which might have been malware, I'm particularly anxious and want to do as much as possible to protect my comptuter and the contents, therein.

Might someone be so kind as to help me with this issue?

Thank you,

Leeflea

Re: Anti spam

If you open up the McAfee Security Center and click "Web and Email Protection", then "Anti-Spam" you will get into the settings for Anti-Spam.

Click the heading "Spam Protection Levels" and change it as desired.  You probably want the "aggressive" setting.

Re: Anti spam

Shawn,

Thank you so much for your instructions and insight. Yes, I'll do that just as soon as I finish responding to your message.

Again, many thanks and esp. for putting it in a way a novice like myself can readily understand.
