Is this normal?

Jump to solution

When my Outlook Express checks e-mail, a very quick new folder appears under the "Deleted items" folder and I think it says "anti-spam", but it's there for a very short period of time. Anyway, the folder is bold, quickly has numbers (like the number of unread messages) and then the numbers go away and the folder disappears. Does McAfee delete the spam it finds or put it all in the "McAfee Anti-Spam" folder ... I don't want anything deleted!

I belong to quite a fe groups that send out mass e-mails and my old spam filter used to flag them as spam all the time. I'm hoping McAfee is better, but I fear it's deleting e-mail without my ever seeing it!

I've checked all my settings an no where can I find any reference to McAfee actually deleting the spam, just renaming it and moving it to the "McAfee Anti-Spam" folder.

So, what's up?

This is normal. Folder is used for temporary processing and nothing is deleted.

Thank you for your prompt reply! I won't worry about the "ghost" folder anymore!
