Thunderbird 3 and Mcafee spam

Just an FYI-I just updated to TB 3.1.8 and it still does not work.

Try the  following

For the 2009 and 2010 versions of Anti-Spam, manually re-register the tbirdins.dll.

1.       Close Thunderbird.

2.    Open a command prompt:

o    Windows XP: Click Start, Run, type cmd.exe, and press Enter.

o    Windows Vista/7: Click the Windows orb and type cmd.exe in the search box.
Right-click command in the results window and select Run as Administrator.
 
 

3.    Type the command below and press ENTER:

cd c:\Program Files\McAfee\MSK
 

4.    Type the command below and press ENTER:

regsvr32 tbirdins.dll
 

5.    When you receive a notification that the operation completed successfully, close the command prompt window.

Launch Thunderbird to verify that the Anti-Spam toolbar is now present.

I did this but it did not fix anything.  The anti-spam toolbar was always present it simply did not work.  Like I said the junk filter in TB is good enough. Thanks for your quick responses.

I do have one more question. When my ISP finally releases the Anti-Spam version with the fix, will I have to create a Spam folder in Thunderbird, or will that be created automatically? If I remember correctly, when I used Outlook, the Spam subfolder was created automatically.

Today (with the older Anti-Spam version), spam email is being marked as SPAM in the subject line, but the messages are being delivered to my inbox.

Thanks.

It should be created automatically, There still appears to be some issues with TB and Mcafee that will be addressed later.

Thanks. I'm looking forward to the updates. I appreciate the help.

I concur.  I had to add  exactly McAfee Anti-Spam,  >>  to every mail account <<, as a root subfolder.

It is just easier to create it manually for an individual.  For a corporation, it is likely to be a real big PITA.

My Thunderbird email program has showed the icon, filtered email OK, but I have not been able to tag an email as SPAM since I loaded version 3. This morning I went to Tools/Ad Ons/Extensions/McAfee Anti Spam Thunderbird Extension 1.0 and disabled it. Thunderbird was then shut down and areopened. I went back to it again and enabled it. Thunderbird shut down and restarted. I went back to my email, and found a Spam email that got through my filter and tagged it as Spam. It removed it from the folder and sent it to my McAfee folder where it used to.

Sure glad to have it back working again.

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.
