Please excuse me in advance for what is probably not exactly the subject
of this Newsgroup but I have recently lost a lot of mail through having
McAfee SpamKiller and MailWasher conflicting with each other. I have
disabled McAfee and am trying to get MailWasher to work as well as it
did before. The question is, I have paid for both and both seem to be
capable of doing the job, but not together on the same PC. I know
something of making MailWasher work and little about how to configure
SpamKiller, however it too seems very good, which should I leave working
on my PC, can I have a line or two of advice please, thank you in
advance.

Colin.
I have to admit my dreadful embarrassment right here and now in that I
have discovered where my mail went. Let it be a lesson to others, I
recently reformatted my hard drives, (I have two), due to an infestation
of viruses and re-installed everything. Unfortunately I bought and
installed McAfee suite of software which included SpamKiller. As I was
already using MailWasher, (you will know what's coming next), by the
time MailWasher had tried to deal with my Spam, McAfee's little
SpamKiller had gobbled them up together with half my mail so I saw
nothing left. It was only when I was checking McAfee I saw my missing
mail.

I retreat in embarrassment and shame for any trouble I have caused you
and others. I am sure nobody else has done anything like that?
My thanks for your link which I am sure will be useful.

I hate that sinking feeling you get when you realise a problem was caused
by something daft :-}

No trouble caused - glad to help where I can, and I can probably say the
same for many in this group - at least a couple of whom have helped me in
the past :-)
