Spam / Malware / Virus Software for Outlook 2010

I am using MS Profession Office 2010 and Windows 7.

For about 5 years, I was using eSet and eSet Smart Security - it was great.  About 96% of spam was caught.  I upgraded to 5.0.95.0 and eSet seemed to just stop scanning my emails.  Unfortunately, eSet tells me there is no way for me to go back to 5.0.94.0 which was working fine.  Even the malware emails were getting through, but when I would click on them, eSet would move them to the Infected folder.  (Usually, eSet would automatically move the emails without any intervention.)  I spoke with eSet Level Three and he watched what was happening.  He suggested I go back to 4.0 but that did not work either

They suggested I go back to version 4, but that still did not seem to work as well.  I tried SpamBully, but if I used the "Report Spam", Outlook would freeze on me for about 20 seconds.  If I used just "Spam" that moves the emails to the Spam folder.

But even after 12 days of trying the program on Outlook, SpamBully would not mark any emails as Spam / Unsure.  SpamBully suggested that I re-scan the folder.  That seemed to get maybe about 5% of my spam but I don't want to have to scan all my folders all the time

I am using Outlook 2010 but most of my emails are popped.  99% of the emails that come in are popped.  I do use an Exchange server so I am link my Windows phone to my emails / calendar / etc.

Are there any other spam programs that can be integrated into Outlook 2010 and seem to work?  

Thank you!

you may want to look at spambayes on sourceforge.

FYI, SpamBully "Report Spam", lets the spammer know that they've hit a LIVE email address. Don't use it, EVER

@coreybryant ,

Did you upgrade it, I mean over the old version or was the old version uninstalled first and then new version was installed.

I would suggest you to remove all the version. Before uninstalling remove the all logs, reports, quarantine files from the eSet Smart Security.

Once removed, reboot the system, then search for any folders which belongs to eSet Smart Security.

Also check the Outlook if there is any error related to it. If not then then we have proceed with the Installation. Make sure Outlook should not be running while installation.

Once installation is complete, check again if it is working fine.

I hope that would help.

For eSet, we went through a lot.  They sent me a program to completely remove the program in Safe Mode.  They finally admitted there seemed to be an issue with 5.0.95.0.  

They had me try the pre-released version, that did not work either.  I uninstalled that and went back to the version 4, which did not work either unfortunately.  

I'll see if spambayes will work.  I am currently using Spam Reader, but it does not seem to work either as well (all that great).  I'll (try to)  mark some messages as spam, but nothing happens.  In other sub-folders, it removes the messages but in a few sub-folders, nothing happens.

I actually downloaded eSet SmartSecurity after trying a number of Spam Outlook-Addons.

They have eSet SmartSecurity 5.2.9.1 and it is working once again in Microsoft Oulook 2010 - thanks to Daniel Womack @dsetcaster and @eset
