Ok will report this in our metting tomorrow.

Just to confirm TB anti spam  was working ie it marked spams as spams and placed them in folder? Does mark as spam work now or before?

What is your Operating sysyem and Service pack?

I assume TB selected in Security centre Anti-spam toolbar section of anti spam area?

It was working perfectly for a time but stopped working.  I do not recall doing /installing/upgrading anything that caused this.  I have windows XP-pro sp3.  All settings in Mcafee are correct-TB selected etc.

The only thing that now does anything in anti-spam is when I mark a message as not spam it displays the prior e-mail in the inbox and then goes back to the e-mail I just marked as not spam.  None of the other things work-ie-show verdict etc.

Thanks thought the 3.17 was a tad new.

I do not suppose you would consider an uninstall reinstall test?

If interested use the MCPR tool as per

http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?lc=1033&id=TS100507

Reboot and reinstall after running

Normally I would, however, the "junk" filter in TB is very good and pretty much eliminates the need for anti-spam as an additional program.  I suspect the adaptave junk filter will only improve as TB updates come out.  I am quite content simply using the built in free Junk filter in TB and not even using the anti-spam.  I think that with McAfee taking so long to fix this issue (is it even fixed?) some folks have found other ways to deal with spam.

Thanks-I would try solutions that are less of a pain in the butt factor

The tech who looks after we mods runs TB at home. He says anti spam appears to be working  but will monitor it. It also would be nice is the others who posted here confirm if they are still having issues so we can see if this is a common issue or just with you.

Understand why you not interested in an uninstall you can keep that as a backup plan maybe
