I have installed McAfee security suite on a number of machines and have found that their Spamkiller component (V7.023) has an unfortunate habit of scanning all stored messages in seemingly all folders within OutLook Express - when Outlook Express is first launched.
E.g One of the PC's has approx 1200 messages sitting in various folders - therfore the initial scan can take approx 3 to 5 mins!
I know the obvious solution is not to store so many messages etc
I have the same program on my laptop running full Oulook (2003) - I get a few messages scanned on initial startup but no where near the amount above. ( I too have a fair amount in storage but use archiving)
Can anyone shed light on this annoying problem as I have asked mcAfee if it is possible to disable this initial scan (using Outlook Express) however I am finding it easier making contact with extra terestials rather than the noble McAfee support dept!
