Thunderbird

Version 10.0

Build 10.0.185

Had a massive update this morning from McAfee, but ever since I have not had Spam Protection on my Thunderbird.

Was there a problem?

    RE: Thunderbird
    Try these fixes....

    First verify that the toolbar is turned on in SpamKiller/Anti-Spam:

    1. Open SecurityCenter.
    2. Click E-mail & IM.
    3. Click Configure in the right pane.
    4. In the Spam protection is enabled pane, click Advanced.
    5. Click E-mail Toolbars in the left pane.
    6. Verify a checkmark is present in the box beside the email client in which you want the toolbar to display.

    If the toolbar is already checked in SpamKiller/Anti-Spam and the toolbar is not visible, see the appropriate solution below to re-register the specific plug-in DLL for your email client.

    For Thunderbird....

    1. Close Thunderbird.
    2. Click Start, Run, type CMD, and click OK.

    Note: For Windows Vista users, you must open a command prompt with administrator privileges. Click Start, Find, type CMD, right-click Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator.


    3. Type CD %ProgramFiles%\McAfee\MSK (For Windows Vista 64-bit, use CD %programfiles(x86)%\McAfee\MSK) and press ENTER.
    4. Type REGSVR32 TBIRDINS.DLL and press ENTER.
    5. Open Thunderbird.

    The SpamKiller/Anti-Spam toolbar should now be visible.

    If not then go to Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs (Programs/Uninstall a Program in Vista)
    Locate the McAfee Security Center item and select it for Uninstall.
    When presented with the menu select only Spamkiller/Anti-Spam for removal.

    Uninstall Anti-Spam, shut down Thunderbird and then reinstall from your online account using the Customize option that will be presented early on in the process.

    Good. Glad it's fixed and thanks for the offer, I'll have a Newcastle Brown Ale...;-)
