Windows 11 Mail client

Hello.

Does McAfee LiveSafe integrate with Windows 11 Mail client?

I used to use Thunderbird email client before my PC died forcing me to buy a new one.

Also, any opinions on the Windows mail app?

Re: Windows 11 Mail client

Hello cyberdude

Thank you for your reply. I was thinking more of scanning for potential viruses contained in emails, than anti-spam.

I was thinking of installing Thunderbird email client on my new computer as it has a tick box to allow antivirus products to scan emails if they have that feature.

I was thinking of installing Thunderbird email client on my new computer as it has a tick box to allow antivirus products to scan emails; That is if the AV product supports email scanning. But if McAfee doesn't provide Personal Email Protection, then I will have to give Norton a try.

Hello,

Thank you for your reaction.

Regarding personal email scanning;

Mcafee does not have this specific option under real time scanning settings for now.

However the same real time scan happens when the file in your emai is opened. Your computer is secured by McAfee real time.

Real-time scanning checks files for viruses each time you access them.

Thunderbird client itself has spamfilter option settings to determine if incoming email is legitimate or spam/phising.

Hope this helps.
