Re: No updates to Anti-Spam content

Everyone has something different, it seems, which is very strange.

My content version is 5843, Content Update 02/11/2016.

Re: No updates to Anti-Spam content

It is my understanding that the Content Date is when it was upgraded\installed. And the Content version is the (Daily) update which changes.

Re: No updates to Anti-Spam content

Pretty sure the date after Content update is the date the current Content version was downloaded. The Content version appears to be Anti-Spam's definitions file.

I noticed the date changed every day when I assume a new content version was downloaded. But this appears to have halted (for me at least) since the last update to the program.

It isn't a big deal for me, as I don't even use Anti-Spam, or any email programs other than web-based! And I'll be reinstalling my whole suite soon, which should remedy any issues! But from the replies in this thread, there does appear to be an issue here.......

Re: No updates to Anti-Spam content

I've found this entry and I'm asking myself whether there'S a new failure on this Anti-Spam-Module?

Since serveral weeks I noticed a lot of spam emails in my inbox and I thought, that this might be a new technique which isn't known by McAfee by now and teached those mails to be understood as SPAM...

But it doesn't get less... it becomes even worse!

So, I checked my Version and this is what is shown:


I'm using Windows 10 Home and MS-Office-Prof-2013 Outlook.

Is there something wrong with the update of the spam definition file?

Re: No updates to Anti-Spam content

Thank you.

It shows that I'm missing 6 Patterns...? Right? Content: 6080 -> 6086

Even I'm manually updating, there's no change.

Should I write a ticket or is there anything I can do by myself?

If still an issue you could call support though they will have you uninstall reinstall i assume so probably better to do that yourself before calling.
