Norton Anti Spam causing freezes in outlook and outlook express

Q: Norton Anti Spam causing freezes in outlook and outlook express

I have noticed that over the past couple of days....anytime i try to get anti spam to either identify received email as either spam...or not spam....it ends up freezing. This happens in both Outlook and Outlook Express. This may have corresponded with my subscribtion renewal. Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Norton Anti Spam causing freezes in outlook and outlook express

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I've been receiving unwanted emails and keep having to place them within my "blocked senders" folder, but the mail keeps coming in from those addresses.
I soon got fed up constantly deleting these messages , so went out to buy Norton's Anti-spam software.
Installed it fine...but Norton doesn't seem to be doing anything...the program is there installed, but it doesn't filter the spam or junk mail like it is suppose to...It kinda sits there idle. Now, with 2 programs running anti-spam, nothing should be coming in...RIGHT?...Nope!!!! Still coming in everyday...HELP !!!!
What can you suggest I could do?
Any help is appreciated

Hi everyone, what is in your opinion the best anti-spam anti-phishing mail program?

As I got my new computer from Dell I got their McAfee security center and McAfee anti-spam. Well, I believe McAfee effects Internet Explorer performance, and I also believe is a cause of some mail not delivering to the people. I would like to get something different to replace McAfee (only mail program).

I used to have MailFrontier. It's pretty good , easy to customize. MailFrontier is not cheap - $30 per year. I am contemplating should I purchase it again, or there is another mail program as good, and could be one time purchase, instead of doing yearly membership.

What do you know guys?

Thanks a lot everyone!!!

I have had Avast Free anti-virus for a long time. At some point, after an automatic upgrade, all my messages in Outlook 2003 got an added anti-spam toolbar from Avast. I don't want it.

I did not find any way to make it go away from inside Outlook. It does not appear as an add-on in the relevant places. At some point, there was a register-based solution that was floating around on the Web. It worked with a previous version of Avast, but not with the current one.

I uninstalled Avast (with the proprietary uninstall tool, in safe mode) and reinstalled it twice. At some point, the anti-spam appeared as a separate module, so naturally I refused installation / deactivated it / uninstalled it (don't remember which). Yet it's impossible to make the toolbar go away.

If I de-activate or uninstall the mail shield module, the anti-spam toolbar goes away, but I don't want that. I want Avast to scan my mail, of course.

Now that I have nixed it somehow, the anti-spam component does not show anymore in the Settings / Components panel, not even in order to be re-activated. I don't know if this is a bug or a feature. It happens with other Avast components that I have refused, or uninstalled, and which do not appear anymore in the options panel as an option available for re-activation.

The anti-spam, illogically, is not part of the mail shield component, and no relevant settings appear in the mail shield settings.

A request in the Avast forum did not bring any helpful answers.

Thanks... Read more

I use sometimes outlook to retrieve my emails but all spam email are also fetched, even after I mark them as Junk email in outlook.

Thank you

A:Why outlook anti-spam is inefficient?

It would rather give you junk than block something important. Depending on your account, ie: Gmail/yahoo the spam filters tend to change quite a bit. For an all inclusive spam filter to email, you're going to spend some bucks.

I'm not quite sure how to explain this, but I have been getting a certain Spam in my outlook express for sometime now, I have tried to get rid of it but it just keeps coming back. This email spam, is the "same" email everytime, it's some kind of Google Search but a different name, each time, for instance, one will be from [email protected] and the next will be from [email protected],but all of them are from sbcglobal.net, but with a different name each time, but the same email.I have tried everything I know, to stop this nuisance. I can't block every email from sbcglobal,.... sbcglobal is my DSL server. I don't know who, or how to report this problem.Anyone have any ideas? I guess my last resort would be to call my server.

Is the first part of your email address easy to generate? My son had the same problem with his, someone was sending email to Tom, TomA, TomB, TomC, etc. at his ISP. If the spam doesn't go away, one painful solution would be to change your name by adding some numbers or odd letters.

Can please someone advise me which anti-spam program for outlook express should i use, because the "block sender" option in outlook doesnt help anything at all. i get at least 10 spam emails a day and even more during weekends. i had one program(cant remember the name) but it didnt do no good. it only messed up whole windows. the program should be as simple as a donut, with a list of blocked domains and a list of particular blocked words in the subject line/in the message itself...(no extra stuff that i need a week to understand what is it about) so that i can change/add subjects in these lists.
thank you!

when i try to add spam source,eg, amazon, sirius, to spam address book i get message 'already in sender address book' : any way to block spam, using outlook express ? thanks

A:Outlook express : Spam

Amazon.com doesn't send spam. If you're getting messages from them, you've signed up for something.

Any filtering done at the e-mail client level means you haven't blocked anything. You're just filtering it to a Junk folder. If you're getting actual spam messages (not marketing you've signed up for), then your e-mail provider has a very bad filter. I use Gmail and get hardly any spam.

hi guys,

can anyone give any advice on how to stop spam in OE 6?


A:spam in outlook express 6

There are various free spam filters available for download if you do a Google search, or a search on this site.


Your ISP might provide one, too.

You can also create message rules within OE, but can be problematic unless all your spam is coming from one place (unlikely).

Another solution is to change your email address, and never post it anywhere on the web.
Never, ever reply to spam in any fashion, even if it asks you to opt out or unsubscribe. Any response indicates a valid email address thus opening the door to a flood of spam.

Free email accounts are offered by MSN or Yahoo and others that are accessed online and don't download via OE. I use one email addy when purchasing online or registering on a site, for example, and another just for trusted sources. So I basically get spam only in one inbox which is checked online, the spam never comes to my computer directly via OE.

Always look at the privacy policy of any site that requires a valid email address. Tedious and boring, I know, but sometimes worth it.

any ideas on how i can stop this kind of spam through outlook express without new software?

A:Outlook Express ... Spam Question

Does your ISP have any kind of Spam Filters that you can activate. If not here is one solution that you might want to try while you weather the storm:

Receive Email Only From Addresses In Your Address Book

Go to OE/Tools/Message Rules/Mail/New/ Tick the first item "Where the from line contains people"/ Tick an item in the #2 box(You have a choice to copy, delete, move to folder, do not download it from server or delete it form server) you might want to set up a junk folder and put them there. Now click "contains people" under box #3/click "address book"/highlight the first name and scroll down to bottom of list and hold "Shift key" and click the last name/click "From" at top right and it will copy address to "Rule Addresses"/click "ok"/click "options"/tick "Message does not contain the people below"/click "ok"/click "ok"/Then click "Specified Folder(if you chose that option earlier)/pick a folder/ click "oK"\Apply Now\Apply Now\Ok\Close\Ok.


I did once set up 10 different rules to block out any subject with 0 through 9 in it. The only drawback is you might block some legimate email although you probably don't receive much email with a number in the subject line.

Here's the problem.

I've been getting a lot of spam emails lately. I know they're not directly aimed at me because everyone that is contacted has the same email server that I do and the names are alphabetical.

I have over the past month added about 100 new spam addresses to my Blocked senders list. I have tried to set up my Outlook Express to not even except them from the server but unfortunately I have been unsuccessful. The only thing that's been accomplished is when the emails are blocked they go straight to my delete file. According to my setup options I should be able to not even upload them from the server, which is Road Runner.

I have tried to set it up and then send myself a test message from my Yahoo account. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong, as far as setting up Outlook Express? I use a different email program at work and it does just fine with filtering. Unfortunately, I've only ever seen it work on a network system. And I actually can't get a copy of it anyway.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have no way to manage my spam folder and approve or deny senders since the anti spam tool bar disappeared on my outlook 2003. On CNET I found this suggestion (copied below), however, when I got to the step of the symantec folder I discovered I didn't have one.

Any other ideas?
In Microsoft Outlook go to:
Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > COM Add-ins
Do an ADD...
find the file NASPlug.dll in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\Antispam\
Select it and say 'OK'.

This should trigger Norton Internet Security to re-add the Norton Toolbar and folder.

Typically when I receive spam, my isp provider marks it as such, then I discern whether it's actual spam, then add those msg's to my junk folder listing. At times I recognize the same spam frequently returning. I'm sure there's a more effective way of managing this unwanted traffic. I've never used "rules & alerts" and "auto-delete"...

Can anyone offer some simple tips?

A:Outlook 2003 (not Express) Spam Management

Hi RubyBlu

Use the Actions > Junk E-mail > Add Sender to Blocked Sender's List to mark unwanted e-mails that download into your Inbox. These are then moved to the Junk E-mail folder and Outlook 2003 will remember next time, if the spammer uses the same address again. Probability of that is low. They'll just use a different e-mail address.

Place your Junk E-mail options to High or use the Safe Sender's List option.
I also use the Tools > Organize feature in Outlook 2003 and have messages from people I know appear in color.
If a message comes in as black, then I can see right off that the message needs to organized by color or use Actions > Junk E-mail > Add Sender to Blocked Sender's List
I go through my Junk E-mail folder at least once a week to verify no messages have been inadvertently marked as Junk that should not be. Then I empty the Junk E-mail folder.

You can also download a free spam program or purchase one, you will more than likely need to train the program as to what is spam and what is not.

There are some free spam alternatives at this site: http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads10.html
Not all the programs listed, at that link, are spam blockers, read the descriptions and check for the word: Freeware

ihave heard that it's possible to configure some email programs to place all received email without my direct email address into a special folder; that way, all the spam that is mass-sent to general addresses would be diverted away from my main box. I could quickly glance through it all at some point on the off chance that something of value actually appears in there(not likely).

I have outlook express but would upgrade to outlook if there was a compelling reason (I'm a private user without any of the demands that would justify such purchase.)

Hey, that's pretty much what I'm looking for. I know there are plenty out there, pretty much an infinite amount, I've searched google for a bit. I need one that's very simple, that can block addresses as simple as [email protected] or even *@blah.com or [email protected]* for more broad blocking. I want it to also not run any services in the background, and if needed, most likely would run a service when Outlook express starts or is sending/recieving. Or be able to set the service to manual and only have it run when outlook is open and then it automatically ends itself when outlook express closes. Oh and, needs to be able to block AIM IMAP mail too. Like manage to take any mail from blocked senders and autodelete them as fit. I'm just seeing if there's such a thing, because I used to manually put them all in on my two AIM.com emails, but now I'm getting errors when trying to save my settings. So kudos to Aim's lovely online email system.

Any help will be appreciated.


A:How to Stop Spam Emails in Outlook Express 6?

Hi bushibashir

One way to stop Spam from entering in your Inbox is to install MailWasher. This program sits on your desktop and all mail comes in via this. From here you can view your mail (without the senders knowing) and delete any you do not want. There is a box you can tick for all Spam emails so that when they arrive again, it will be automaticallly deleted without any more intervention.

At this point, all mail is still on the actual ISP server. Once you have vetted the mail, you can allow in the ones you want into your Inbox without worry.

Unfortunately many of us get flooded with empty emails which seem to be used to determine if our email addresses are active. It we open these emails a signal is sent to a mailing list seller who keeps the email address on his lists. I have been advised to always only read my email off-line to avoid this problem. It seems to work but takes a month or two before the siege abates. Then when you forget to go off-line or open an offending email which gets you back on the lists and it starts over again.
