TrendMicro Anti Spam strange problem

    I've been using Trend Micro Anti-Spam for about a week and it works very
    well.

    But - for some bizarre reason, everytime I open Outlook (which I do
    quite frequently since I have 5 different users), the icon from the
    phishing tab is copied to my clipboard.

    Then, when I go paste something, there is the icon. I clear it, I cut
    it, it's extremely hard to get rid of.

    I am using a clipboard utility called Clipmate which I've used
    successfully for many years. The strange thing is that the phishing
    icon is copied to the Windows clipboard and not to Clipmate.

    Any ideas before I give up and uninstall?

    If not Trend Micro anti spam, which I like, what should I try next?

    TIA

    You could take a look at Mailwasher Pro.

    Not wanting my email in ASCII, I tried Spambayes and began training it a
    few days ago. It learns quickly and well and is much less intrusive.

    Well, Spambayes is Ok. With Mailwasher though, you don't have to "train
    it". I just set up some filters and monitor what needs to be tweaked for
    adding to whitelists and blacklists. It's not an email client, per se.
    It allows you to quickly scan the headers of you email that still sits
    on the server. You can pick and choose what you want stay there for
    subsequent downloading and zap the rest.

    I concur, it is an outstanding product in most respects. I haven't used
    it since I switched mail clients and methods but Mailwasher does do a
    fine job at filtering. It works best on a fast PC though if you receive
    a lot of mail from multiple locations.

    For me and my use of mailwasher I found filtering various header source
    countries IP ranges very useful, but I am a national bigot that only
    have a requirement to communicate directly with 3 countries. I like a
    number of the rule set additions that have been made since I used the
    product.

    I just went to see if anything new had been added to mailwasher since I
    used it and saw the mailwasher server open source project. Has anyone
    in the group played with it? It looks useful in both exchange server and
    nix enterprises. Has anyone here used/tested this product in a
    production environment? Problems? Lessons learned? It looks like it
    would be useful for anyone running their own mail gateway with multiple
    user accounts. The performance stats "look" pretty good too.
