Thunderbird and Mcafee has a bug or 2
To workaround teh slow issue you need to disable email attachment scanning in Real time scanning. Real time scanning will still protect you but with all those emails you have to be careful.
I also see Anti spam is acting up in version 12.* in that if I click mark as spam it did not move the email. ( I need to recheck this)
Are you saying Mcafee says it moved 23167 emails if so where? Is this in the Mcafee program itself ie in history?
Thank you for your reply.
I know that I can disable attachment scanning but thought it is somethingelse as I wanted mcafee to check attachements so I could somehow reject those emails coming with zip files and trojans in it.
But I guess I just have to disable it as you say.
However as I mentioned earlier the most weird thing for me is that the thunderbird diplays the message in status bar (as the image above) that the MCAfee moved say 23,000 to antispam but in MCafee Antispam folder there are 0 messages!!!! its empty!!! I too dont understand it!!!! I dont know where these messages go. And most importtnantly I dont even have this many messages in my inbox.
There are only 1279 messages in total so how come it says that it already moved over 23,000 of messages if I dont even have this many messages in my inbox!!
its something wrong!!! its either a false message embedded in thunderbird created by some weird virus program or its a bug in thunderbird.
ITs really really weird!
Ok will do some testing on mine and the wife's pc. Also on monday will ask how the fix is going. I gave two sets of logs to the developers two weeks ago so will ask at our weekly mod call.
So what is the version and build number of your anti spam. It is not working on my wife's win 7 64 bit PC if you click mark as spam the email does not move. I cannot on it nor my 14.6 version of AS (beta) get a comment re number of messages moved.
My mcafee antispam version is 2.0. however I am not sure how to find the build number.
Thank you for your help so far
The build may be displayed in 'About" - open SecurityCenter then click About at lower right and scroll down to AS. I don't use it so am guessing here. Try that anyway.
The current version is far higher than that 13.8 or so and included in Total protection suites as well as some of the other suites.
Are you looking at the addon number? What version of the AS addon have you got in Thunderbird? IE go to tools/addons
Also what product have you got is it Mcafee internet security or Total Protection or what?
You need to access teh about key in Mcafee product to check the version as Peter said
Just returned home from my visit to Baltimore, Maryland.
As Ex_Brit stated, and PeaceKeeper as well. You need to check your Version.
For instance,I,m running:
McAfee Total Protection
Content Update 5/4/2014 541:17 pm
Engine Version 188.8.131.529
I might add that my "McAfee Security Center"
Edited for spelling
That is the same as my wife is running. I will ask wrt the message tomorrow in our call.
By the way have you uninstalled Mcafee and reinstalled it via
reboot and run
and reinstall from your account
That might remove the funny message but will not help teh TB slow down issue.
