    Default What - Only 1 POP3 Account for Spam Filtering???

    I installed the 2007 Internet Security Suite last night (to replace CA's eTrust Suite used last year which replaced Norton the year before and McAfee the year before that and so on). My wife and I have separate logins on the same computer with separate Road Runner email addresses (POP3 type).
    When I installed Zone Alarm I found that it would setup antispam only on my account.
    Then I searched ZA's FAQs and found this:

    <a target="_blank"></a>





    3. Will ZoneAlarm Anti-Spam filter more than one email account?








    ZoneAlarm Anti-Spam will filter multiple email accounts as long as all the email accounts are directed to the same inbox.







    Currently ZoneAlarm Anti-Spam filters one POP3 inbox. In environments with multiple POP3 accounts with multiple inboxes, only the default inbox will be filtered.

    Unless I'm missing something here this really stinks!!!
    I've had the ability to filter spam on both of these email inboxes
    for the past 3 years with each of the previous security software suites (CA, Norton, McAfee).
    Is there a workaround on this or
    should my wife and I flip a coin to see who gets to install the antispam?

    I researched Zone Alarm on PCMag.com and other places but never saw anywhere that the antispam has this big
    of a weakness.












    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:6.5

    Still can't figure it out and am not real impressed with ZA's Spam Filter.
    Wife started ragging that ever since I removed the eTrust suite, her spam has been killing her.
    So I figured that I'd do the cool thing and give her the &quot;1 and
    Only&quot; Spam Filter in the suite.
    So I've been trying and can't do it.
    There is no way that I can find to transfer the
    stupid Spam Filter to my wife's email account.
    So I tried uninstalling and reinstalling thru her account.
    Then it wouldn't let me install thru her. Said she didn't have admin rights (but she does).
    So I uninstalled and cleaned all of the registries per ZA's instructions.

    Then I reinstalled thru her account.
    But the stupid Spam Filter still
    only wants to Whitelist my email!
    What am I doing wrong?
    Either I'm an ***** or this is pretty buggy software.

    Version 7 has the ability to scan multiple inboxes.

    Does
    the
    spam filter
    also scan other folders?
    I have OE set to automatically move certain email to certain folders.
    Will the ZASS spam filter scan and remove spam from these folders as well, or will having OE move the mail make the filter bypass these emails?
    Thanks,
    Larry

    It will scan multiple inboxes. If you sort the mail according to rules, then you can scan multiple folders using the Scan Folder option in the preferences menu
