Where is the email spam list file?

Is there a local file that updates when I flag a piece of mail as spam? My old system had a text file that recorded mail addresses that I wanted to block.

Moved to Anti-Spam for better support




Re: Where is the email spam list file?

Moved to the anti-spam folder in outlook? If so does that mean when I empty the spam folder that the record of the spam email is gone? There is no record (in a file) that is kept in a file to flag an email next time one is sent to me?

No, I'm the Moderator here and was simply advising you that I had moved the thread from where it was Consumer, to the Anti-Spam section.  Hopefully someone will answer you soon.  Sorry I don't use that feature otherwise I'd have a go.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Re: Where is the email spam list file?

Depends I think on two things - what's the version of Outlook, and what is the McAfee program (name/year/version) you're running.

I found a sub-folder in Program Files under McAfee with the name 'MSK'. This is the anti-spam folder, but in it I see no text files. DLL files, LUA files, and a ReadMe which contains some useful links to program documentation including links to Known Issues. One of the issues notes a problem with an older version of Outlook, the same problem may still be around. Find the folder, find the ReadMe, follow the links and you might find something useful; you might even find that the folder on your system contains some txt files, although I doubt it.
