    I've been using the Beta for a while now and as far as I can tell the SPAM detection capabilities are worthless. Every day I have to mark the same kinds of emails as spam over and over again. It doesn't seem to learn anything. To make matters worse I find legitimate emails constantly marked as SPAM.

    I've checked my settings and it looks to me like I've got the "best" settings I can choose, including the advanced scan.

    What is the deal, is the SPAM detection in the beta not fully operational yet or is this what I can expect? If so I would have to buy another product to manage my SPAM and I'm not too interested in having to purchase two products. The SPAM detection in my previous internet security package was pretty good.

    I have some of the same problems. I have the 'pre-release updates' checked and I see that the spam modules are updated quite often but still I have to check many emails as 'spam' over and over again.

    I have the latest v6 and have been testing since day one. I really like ESET SS and will continue to use it but hope that the spam module gets up to speed.

    KOR,

    Thanks for the verification. At least I know it's not just me or my configuration.
