Can't Unlock known good "phishing" email

    Hi, All - especially MSFT.

    In WLM beta (12.0.1184), my phishing filter is working well - maybe too
    well!

    WLM has flagged as a possible phishing attempt an email from another MVP,
    because that email contains a link to a commercial web page - which I've
    checked out. So, I click on the "Unblock Message". There's a very brief
    blink - and no other change. The pink header remains pink, and the message
    is still red in the message list. Repeated clicks get the same response (or
    lack thereof).

    Maybe my mouse is not working right. Is there a key-stroke to Unblock a
    suspected phishing message?

    Now that the message has been marked Read, when I look at it in the folder
    where my Rule moved it, it is not pink or otherwise flagged.

    Hi,

    Phishing mail can also be unblocked from the context menu. You can right click on the message in the message list and choose "Junk e-mail (J)"->"Unblock (U)".

    Thanks for beta testing!

    Have you tried dragging it to another folder?

    Hi, Hua.

    Thanks for that tip.

    But I still need to find out whether the failure to recognize my mouse-click
    on "Unblock Message" was a problem with my specific mouse (Microsoft
    Wireless Laser Mouse 6000, using the Intellipoint 6.2 drivers), or a problem
    with the WLM beta.

    Have other users reported this as a bug?

  5. Not that I am aware of. It works as expected here with the touchpad of my
    laptop.

  6. Hi Hua, I notice you are posting from a newer version ... and you are
    posting in quoted-printable encoding. Are you trying to tease OE/WM/WLM
    users? ;-)

    I hope that's not a change in default settings, is it?

    Saludos
    Roland

    Same issue here. I have tried all the suggested ways to unblock, Right click
    "unblock" going to the junk email settings, lowering security. Nothing.
