    I want to see the mail that eset treats as spam A folder briefly opens but disappears and I cant find it. I think there is an important email in there for me.


    Also is it possible to dump Smart Security and go download just Nod 32 av ?

    edit : should add thats its Windows Mail and the OS is Vista Ultimate

    With an ESS license, you can run any of the ESET programs you desire.

    Siingle-click on the ESS icon (in the tray), click on Advanced Setup, click on Antispam Module (on the left-side). The 3rd & 4th boxes (on right-side) should be checked and next to the 4th check-box is the folder name where the Spam is saved (I use the Junk E-mail folder).

    With that said, I have been using ESS ever since the final version was released (now on build 642), so it's Spam filter has had suffient time for its learning process. Yet, I do not find the Spam Filter to be very effective insofar as its ability to identify Spam!

    In my opinion, the ESS Antispam module is pretty bad.

    I found no decent way to import/export its black lists. I tried to use my Outlook 2003 Junk E-mail black list but no way.

    Besides that, the amount of spam it catches is minimum, so after using it, in conjunction with Outlook 2003 Junk E-mail (that "joint-venture" didn't work fine), I decided to disable it and go back to SPAMfighter, that in conjunction with Outlook 2003 Junk E-mail does make a decent job.

    Assuming that ESS Anti-spam can learn, what advantage is there in that for me if it happens that I have to uninstall ESS? I'll lose all the blacklist,that, in fact, are less and less valuable everyday because sapammers change their sending address and domains every while.

    well spam isnt a problem for me so have disabled it.

    nod32 was a good simple non clogging bit of software......am not a fan of Eset Smart Security and if I hadnt just paid for a renewal I would dump Eset
