I have multiple workstations. I use Outlook - which allows you to say "delete at server after x days". These days I get over 2000 emails per day so I set "delete after 1 day".

After trying No-Spam for 2 days - it does not appear to be deleting. After 2 days I'm up to 5000 email and it fast outstripping ability of No-Spam - i.e. I can't wait 8 hours for it to process them. Is there some setting?

Outlook forgets what messages it has seen whenever the account settings change. Could it be that you enabled/disabled NoSpamToday! for the account in question?

Set the maximum spam size setting in the configuration wizard to 1 byte, this effectively allows you to disable NoSpamToday! without modifying Outlook's account settings. The processing will be as fast as you can download your mail.

Yes.

No.

And it gets worse. My pop server is a domain hosting company called Verio - and I'm limited to 200MB (that's mega bytes). On this site I can see Unix directories (via a web app) to delete files when they become large... for some reason NoSpamToday seemed (I'm not necessarily blaming NoSpam) caused a Trash file to become 160MB (after 3 days) and I had to uninstall. It appears as if NoSpam caused a extra mail directory to be created? with Inbox, Trash and Trash became a 160MB file that I had to delete to get back into compliance. When I deleted this extra mail directoy and uninstalled NoSpam everthing went back to normal.

I don't have info/tools to figure out what's happening - and after several hours on this I'm out of time.

It seems there is an Outlook quirk which needed a small workaround. This issue seemingly did only occur in certain Outlook/POP3 server combinations.

The latest version (1.0.5.2) fixes this. Please get it from the download page.
