    Hello All:

    I have OA Mail Shield and PC Tools Spam Monitor and Nod32 Emon in Combination.

    "

    My question is this, Does OA Mail shield duplicate what PC Tools Spam Monitor and Nod32 emon do?

    I want maximum protection and minimum duplication.

    At the moment I have:

    OA doing it's anti_Phishing Mail Shield work
    PC Tools doing it's spam filtering work
    and
    Nod32 2.7 scanning email for parasites

    All seem to be working, but as you would predict email downloading is slower. I don't care about slower since safety IMHO trumps performance.

    See you.

    If you want max portection use a web based email. I stopped using Outlook years ago. I just use my att/yahoo email.

    NOD32 does have some anti-phishing iirc.

    Yes, TK, I was unaware of that. Until recently. :oops:

    Do you or anybody know how to:

    1) set that up in emon I assume.
    2) how the nod32 antiphishing works? do they check against a list of "baddies"

    If there is a link to a help I've missed please let me know.

    The phishing detection is part of the signatures iirc. I dont think you can tweak it.

    Okay, thanks. One can go overboard on antiphishing. It's in the browsers as well
    so I'm done on that hazzard for now.
