What causes the [SPAM] insertion in the subject of many of my emails?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by BCJOHNSON, Mar 13, 2007.



    My apologies if this has been discussed and answered. Just hooked up to this
    newsgroup and didn't see a thread on this subject. I have my McAfee
    Spamkiller disabled but still get this "[SPAM]" insertion at the beginning
    of many non spam emails. Anyway to prevent it? Is it caused by Windows Mail
    settings? Just got the Vista computer a week ago so have only used Windows
    Mail for the past week.
    Would appreciate any insights.

    Get rid of McAfee altogether. It is a cause for many problems with Windows Mail

  3. You need to uninstall any McAfee product as they cause big troubles. See

    But that is not what puts the [SPAM] in there. That is on the server side
    and you can adjust that on the mail server web interface usually. Check
    with your mail provider.
