I just read 2 (actually 1+) pages of McAfee forum messages here: https://community.mcafee.com/message/238950
Mcafee Anti Spam Toolbar and
Thunderbird 9.0 (messages from 2012 Jan-Jul)
Nowhere in the 10 comments did I see any really useful advice.
This is what I consider useful advice in the moz kb:
Antivirus software .. Many experts recommend turning off email scanning
in antivirus software since it provides no added protection and corrupts
and destructs email folders much more often than viruses and other
malware do. It also eats up CPU power, slows down sending and receiving,
and causes many problems such as time-outs and changes in account settings.
That article goes on to say that normal realtime scanning and no email
in or out scanning is sufficient strategy.
