According to McAfee ‘anti-spam products provide good protection against spam. However, spam is sometimes difficult to detect; spammers develop new techniques and some newer spam is inevitably not detected by any anti-spam product.’
In addition, ‘some false detection can occur; an anti-spam product can wrongly categorize some genuine messages as spam’.
McAfee spam submission tool is an add on to Microsoft Outlook and allows users to quickly and easily submit missed spam samples and email that was wrongly categorized as spam to McAfee Labs which help you reduce the amount of unwanted email (or spam) that you receive.
McAfee Spam Submission Tool version 2.2 can also be used with McAfee Secure Content Management appliances and McAfee Quarantine Manager to train the Bayesian database. The tool supports auto Black/Whitelisting and has an installer that supports automated script-based installations.
This tool only works with Microsoft Outlook (not with Outlook Express) and allows submitting 1Mb of file size.
