    Hi:

    Using ESS I have come used to seeing the [SPAM] title on my unsolicited mail, and I like the fact that the spam filter is learning pretty well what mail I want and what not, one thing bothers me though, I never see ESS classify mail as Phishing... even when Outlook often does... so my question is when do we know that ESS has classified a mail as Phishing and not just SPAM?? does it tag them or not? and if it does, how come I have never seen one even when I see a lot done by Outlook (and they are often right).

    Just what I suspected: Outlook and Eeset don't classify mail the same way...
    This is what I have as Phishing In outlook, which clearly is not for ESS (see attachment)
    And my question is, what is the difference between what can be classified as phishing and what not??

    Your example is not a phishing email, it's an email with a link to Nuwar which is rather spam.

    Is that ESET calling in your mailbox, Marcos?
