[14:45] <+heat123> i didn't see any wizard
[14:45] <+Artellos> At the top does it say: "New Mail Rule"
[14:46] <+heat123> yes
[14:46] <+Artellos> Press Cancel in the bottom right.
[14:46] <+heat123> ok
[14:46] <+Artellos> Now it should say: Message rules in the title
[14:46] <+heat123> yep
[14:46] <+heat123> am there
[14:46] <+Artellos> On the tab: Mail Rules, Can you see any rules in the top box?
[14:47] <+heat123> no it is a white box and the one below says no rules are seclected
[14:47] <+heat123> *selected
[14:48] <+Artellos> Alright, Have you also checked your McAfee Spam filters? What are those set to?
[14:49] <+heat123> yes i checked with a mcafee support person like where doing and they said it is not there problem
[14:50] <+heat123> as far as mcafee settings
[14:51] <+Artellos> Ok, are those 3 e-mails the only ones that disapeared? Or did more e-mails disapear?
[14:51] <+heat123> anyway it is set to medium
[14:51] <+heat123> more emails have dispearred
[14:52] <+heat123> everytime i check emails most of the time at least one disppears
[14:52] <+heat123> if not more
[14:52] <+heat123> this has been happening for a couple weeks now
[14:52] <+Artellos> did you try to disable McAfee before you download your e-mail?
[14:53] <+heat123> no i am willing not because if there was a spam thing it could mess up the computer and it is important
[14:54] <+heat123> do you know any techs that could get me to solve this problem or just you
[14:54] <+Artellos> Spam generally doesn't do anything nasty to your PC unless you open it.
[14:54] <+heat123> ok i still don't want to do that
[14:54] <+heat123> i know a lot about malware
[14:55] <+heat123> and optimization as well
[14:55] <+heat123> and learning how to build a system and learning computer programming
[14:55] <+Artellos> It's a form of troubleshooting we use. And i'm pretty sure others will ask you to do so too, Just to check it isn't McAfee. I'll quote this conversation to the forum and see if I can think of any other techs that might be able to help you. Is that ok?
[14:56] <@Leurgy> What happens if you click on the Inbox, then View, then Current View, then Show All Messages?
[14:56] <+heat123> yes artellos do you know any other techs
