Anti-Spam Desktop for Outlook 2013 & Windows 8
When bobj opened the original thread in June 2013, he gave an AntiSpam version number of 188.8.131.5273. In his November update the number was unchanged. Here in Feb 2014 I am using the same version and it is still crashing Outlook 2013 (if the product is so good that it doesn't need updating, we wouldn't be having this discussion). If SonicWall cannot give an ETA for the solution, the obvious question is - are they actively looking at the problem? Indeed, are they interested?
There is no indication on the product description page for ZoneAlarm Extreme Security that there is a Windows 8 problem in this area so why are we paying for a product that doesn't work according to its published Sales Description? Will there be discounts on future renewals and/or refunds on current subscriptions?
Re: Anti-Spam Desktop for Outlook 2013 & Windows 8
The system requirements (in the more info area) do state the following is supported with spam filtering.
Note: no mention of outlook 2013 at all. thats accross all OS's
So there will be no issuing of refunds becasue of no support for outlook 2013.
Sonic Wall is working on an upgrade but there is no ETA from them. The upgrade will not be in our next major release coming soon (Q1), we can tell you that with certanty. It will be in a later release sometime in 2014.
