Outlook 2010 and Norton's AntiSpam add-in are not playing together
This latest update (18.104.22.168) seems to have completely broken the Outlook 2010 Antispam add-in. Strange how Symantec/Norton seems to repeat history when it comes to integration issues. This same thing happened back in 2015 and no solution or explanation was ever given by Symantec for it then either. There was even a thread here that claimed Norton was not compatible with Outlook 2010. Here were a few years later and once again Outlook and Norton's Antispam add in are not playing together.
Tried everything suggested including uninstalling and reinstalling both Norton and Office 2010. Once Norton finishes the updates the issue returns and the add-in is rendered inactive. Registering the add-in is a total waste of time as it appears to always get deactivated by Outlook if it ever gets registered in the first place when clicking the appropriate text link in the Norton settings screen. I do find it strange how Outlook doesn't even show a location for the add-in. I already spent too many hours on the phone with Norton tech support and no solution or explanation was offered. In fact, this foreign accented person actually suggested I do a complete reinstall of EVERYTHING from the OS on up. That is NOT even worth considering!!! It would far quicker and easier to remove Norton and switch to a different security program. I, like most people, do not have the time to reinstall Win 7 64-bit from scratch followed by the hundreds of updates to the OS and Office software.
