A McAfee update came through today and now Outlook Express has no Anti-spam toolbar. Messages now are being sent to the Anti-spam folder which yesterday would have gone into the Inbox, and there's no way to unmark them as Spam or to transfer them to the Inbox that I can yet find.
Has anyone else noticed this, and does anyone know a quick fix to get these messages out of the Spam folder and into the Inbox? As a temporary fix I've reduced the Spam checking level by one notch, and that should help. If necessary Anti-spam can always be turned off, but Hotmail in particular is letting a number of spam emails through so I'd rather not.

See if right-click menu works for you. Otherwise try to install the patch:
When you launch Outlook Express (in Windows XP) or Windows Mail (in Windows Vista), the McAfee Anti-Spam toolbar is not displayed.
Ensure that McAfee Anti-Spam is configured to display the toolbar in Outlook Express and Windows Mail.
If the Anti-Spam Toolbar is still not displayed, continue to Solution 2
Step 1 - Disable Access Protection
Step 2 - Replace
Step 3 - Enable Access Protection
The Anti-Spam toolbar should now be displayed

Now that's what I call a Quick Fix. Excellent. Thank you, okv, for the link. Yes, the toolbar is back. Problem solved.
