Thunderbird 3 and Mcafee spam

Jump to solution

I just updated to the full version of Thunderbird 3, not beta  and have no Mcafee spam icon. Have uninstalled and reinstalled TB3 still the same. I have done an online chat to Mcafee who at first said they do not support the beta but I explained it's now full release so they said it will get updated automatically when there is a fix but I still wonder if I have something wrong in my TB3 profile as I have not seen any other post on this

Any Ideas ?

So far so good with this thing and TB 3.1.7 or 3.1.8.  Not sure what I am doing right but the latest MC antispam toolbar seems to operate as intended.

have you tried reinstalling mcafee?

anti spam may need to apply itself to TB

Not yet, Mcafee has been working ok so I did not want to touch it if I could help it but I think I may have to.

Ok so I have uninstalled Mcafee then reinstalled and I now have 3 icons SPAM, ADD SPAM and ADD FRIEND, not as many as there used to be but they do not seem to do anything so I thinknk it is a problem with TB3, a lot of their addons do'nt work with it now so will wait for update

What is the TB version you have installed? I am currently only aware of the TB 3 RC 2 which is still in beta. This version is still not a complete release and is not supported by mcafee

It is Thunderbird 3 but they released the full version about a week ago.

It was released on the 8th December 2009

Many thanks for your help, trouble is TB3 is quite nice to use and I do'nt want to go back to version 2+. They are planning 3.1 for April so that says it all, they got it out to quick.

Agree with you 100% there, on computers using Win 7 without a native email client this application just rocks.

Still no fix for this - or at least a time frame?
