          Leverage your sales channel.  They seem to be most interested in escalating and helping in my experience.    Their bread doesnt' get buttered if you grown angry and don't renew.


          I've also found that tickets opened on the web seem to languish.  It's important to call.

              Dear  Lakshmanan S ,


              Mcafee support  is the worst I've known.  I open an issue takes them 3 days just to tell me that they have accepted the call, but not open problem .

              and soetime he cannot open the problem so is close the case .

              I'm on the phone with them, don't understand what I'm talking about with them, just do not understand the product.

              My problem is simple:

              HIPS missing from Managed Features list in McAfee Agent

                  Please try to configure ePO HIPs policy to enable Client tray icon to be displayed in client machine:

                  Log on to ePO console > Policy Catalog > HIPS > My Default > Client UI > Please enable "show tray icon" > save

                    Hi, I totally agree with the complain.


                    I'm getting very bad support on Secure Computing product since it has been bouight by McAfee.


                    Right now, we have a problem with the new Antispam (MEG7).

                    We try to recieve en email from a known sender, that is being blocked by the Global Thread Intelligence (GTI).

                    Since 2 weeks I writting every days to the support and we still cannot get email from this sender !!!


                    Soon I will open the windows and see if appliance can fly ... maybe better than the support can help ...


                    I'm very sad to see good technology being served so badly
