    Hi
    Using Bitdender IS 2016 trial and using Thunderbird e-mail which gives me the Cloudmark Toolbar and the Bitdefender toolbar and 2 spam folders..a better way of configuring or use them both..Sometimes I block domains with Cloudmark and Sometimes Bitdefender...both work well..dump one and keep the other or not?

    does your email provider filter your mail for you? does their filtering often miss spam? most modern providers are pretty good at excluding blatant spam (pharmacy, russian brides, etc), so you might be alright with just one of the two.

    In that case, I'd suggest trying to turn off Cloudmark to see how BitDefender's antispam works for you - BD has a good reputation for effective antispam. Might give you a better idea how it would fare if you decided to license BD after your trial period.
