Does Anti-spam support IMAP?


I'm using Outlook 365 and my mailboxes consist of 1 Exchange and 3 IMAP accounts. The McAfee Outlook addin on the toolbar is greyed out for the IMAP accounts and not filtering spam in them, whereas the outlook.come looks OK and the Inbox has a McAfee anti-spam sub-folder inserted.

The reason I activated anti-spam is that it's these IMAP mailboxes that get the most dangerous spam whereas has its own decent filter and McAfee anti-spam is not essential for that account.

I can't find anything in the help / forum, appreciate some guidance, thanks.
