    DLP 10.0.2 Causing Outlook to freez or crash


      Good day,


      DLP 10.0.2, McAfee agent 5.0.4, VirusScan 8.8 Patch 6


      We have been experiencing issues with Outlook freezing and crashing when DLP is installed. Also When sending emails Outlook crashes due to DLP add-in.


      Is there anyone who is experiencing these issues with DLP and what could be causing Outlook to freeze?

          We are having the same issues, but they appear randomly.

          After creating a service ticket to McAfee support, I got request from them to replicate the issue ... but since it happens randomly I was unable to replicate the issue and ticket were closed.

            I have also opened a case with McAfee and they've also asked me to replicate the issue.



            It seems as if McAfee doesn't want to troubleshoot this issue or take responsibility for it, how helpful.

              We are also experiencing this issue.  It seems to occur often when declining a calendar occurrences.

                We need a product recall.....  : )


                Same issue, and it looks to be the Outlook Add-In. Disabling it seems to solved the problem.

                  Crashing and freezing issue was already in version 9.x .. so it's nothing new.


                  Disabling add-in solves the issue .. but in that case e-mail protection is not working at all for corresponding computer.


                  And the problem was, that outlook disabled "bad" add-ins by itself, so you won't even know that computer has no e-mail protection.

                  We solved this issue by setiing dlp addin as mandatory in group policy - so even when outlook tries to disable it, it still stays enabled.


                  also, when it's not set in group policy, user can disable add-in manually, send out sensitive data and afterwards enable add-in again and you won't see that event in ePO.
