McAfee spam filter disappeared from Outlook 365.

I have McAfee Total Protection.

On June 1, 2022, Gmail updated its server and will no longer support Pop3. I was forced to switch to IMAP to get my email to work with Outlook 365. That's when McAfee quit checking for spam emails. The COM add-in and McAfee toolbar are gone and do not appear in Outlook.

When I checked support, it says to start McAfee, then access tabs in McAfee that I do not have. The tabs on your instructions and video look nothing like mine. They look like the tabs I used to have. How can I get the spam filter back into Outlook?
