Re: NIS2010 automatically adds the anti spam component to outlook express!

Hi mo

The NIS 2010 Anti Spam engine is now using the world’s leading Symantec Brightmail technology. The engine is further enhanced to not only perform local scanning, but to also double check the results in real-time against the backend system.

As part of the Antispam filtering, WebQueries are performed to increase filtering effectiveness.

This increases the Spam detection rate and reduce the false positives

Antispam component is set to ON (that's the default state) after NIS install. Only because of that it has added itself to your Outlook Express, whereas with previous versions of NIS, Antispam's default state after Install will be Off

Hope this info helps you

Thanks

Re: NIS2010 automatically adds the anti spam component to outlook express!

Do you know if it will clash with any other spam software such as mailwash which my mother uses? I will be installing NIS2010 on her machine as well.As she has one of my licenses.

Thanks

Hi mo

You need not worry. It will not clash with other Spam softwares (including mailwash).

You can very well utilize mailwash's filtering as well as Norton's fitlering

Thanks

Yes definitely.. Turning of Antispam increases you exposure to receive unsolicited email messages

Just use it for use days with Norton's Antispam turned On : You can very well know the difference and see the effectiveness of it

Thanks

Hey mo ;-)))

Turn it off, see how it works for a few days; turn it on, see how you like it, then make a final decision ;-D

I will leave it on and see what it does...... if anything,I was always curious about it when it was off by default in 2009 but I was not prepared to have an extra add on!!

I may block a family member as a test....LOL

mo,

Is that a case of "getting what you (secretly) wish for"? Just wanted to check your spam filter didn't you??
