SPAMfighter doesn’t delete any emails. They are moved to a folder named “SPAMfighter” in the root of your mail box. Many people uses the standard installation which only shows the Outlook panel in the left side of Outlook. To see the SPAMfighter folder you’ll have to open the folder pane. Both windows can be enabled and disabled from the drop down window “View” in top of Outlook.When you use the folder pane, you can create a shortcut in the Outlook panel if you prefer to use this.

Your SPAMfighter folder is to the left under “Personal Folders”.

In Outlook 2000 / 2002/ XP:
Go to your panel and choose “View” and activate “Folder list”.

In Outlook 2003:
Go to your panel and choose “Go” -> “Folder list (Ctrl+6)”

If you are using the client version of SPAMfighter and it is not filtering your emails then it might be because you are using IMAP to get your mails which SPAMfighter doesnt support.
To check if you use IMAP please follow the guide here

This is coursed by Windows update, you can read more about it on their website: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935448/en-us

Even when you have SPAMfighter installed, you will still receive some spam mails. SPAMfighter filters around 90% of all spam automatically. 
You can help make SPAMfighter even better by reporting the spam mails we miss to the SPAMfighter Server.  To do this, simply select the email and click on block in the SPAMfighter toolbar.
The email will be moved to the SPAMfighter folder and reported to our server.

SPAMfighter doesn´t change your attachments.

SPAMfighter doesn’t delete any emails. They are moved to a folder named “SPAMfighter” in the root of your mail box. Many people uses the standard installation which only shows the Outlook panel in the left side of Outlook. To see the SPAMfighter folder you’ll have to open the folder pane. Both windows can be enabled and disabled from the drop down window “View” in top of Outlook.When you use the folder pane, you can create a shortcut in the Outlook panel if you prefer to use this.

You can update your Outlook here

Just choose the fast option

It sounds like Outlook has deactivated SPAMfighter.
To solve the problem. Please do this: (Outlook 2000)
* Close Outlook
* Choose Start -> Programs -> Spamfighter -> Settings
* Close the “Configuration tools”
 
Open Outlook and your toolbar should be back.
To solve the problem. Please do this: (Outlook 2002, XP,2003)
* Press “Help” from the Outlook drop down menu in the top of Outlook and select “About Microsoft Outlook”.
* A window pops up with a button called “Disabled Items”.
* Press the button and a list of programs Outlook has disabled will appear.
If SPAMfighter is on the list:
* Select it and press the “Enable” button.
Close all windows and restart Outlook and SPAMfighter should work again.
If not, please contact our support department.
If this didn”t work then it could be caused by a windows service pack, then please try this:
In Outlook go to “Tools” -> “Options” -> “Other” -> “Advanced Options” -> “COM Add-Ins”
Is the SPAMfighter add-in available?
If SPAMfighter doesn”t appear on the list, please add this file and afterwards restart Outlook:
C:Program FilesSPAMfighterClientsOutlookSFOL0000.dll
If SPAMfighter appears on the list, try to remove the checkmark and click on “OK”.
Go back to “COM Add-Ins” and put the checkmark back and click on “OK”.
Now restart Outlook and SPAMfighter should be back.
If it doesn”t, please close Outlook and press the Windows Start button and choose Run and copy this string into the field and press ok:
regsvr32 “C:Program FilesSPAMfighterClientsOutlookSFOL0000.dll”

Restart Outlook, if the toolbar isn”t there, please try the first part again, by add the dll-file to the COM Add-Ins.

I f the SPAMfighter folder has been deleted, you can get it back by restarting Outlook.
If that doesn”t help, your SPAMfighter folder must have been moved into another folder.
Try to look in every folder you have to see if it was accidentally put there.
If you find it, click and drag it to “Personal folders”.
If you can”t find it, create a new folder called “SPAMfighter-1” folder (don”t call it “SPAMfighter”)
Go to: More -> Options -> Client Settings -> Outlook 2000/2002/2003 -> Select
Choose the folder you have created and press “OK” -> “OK”
Restart Outlook and the spam should go into your new SPAMfighter-1 folder from now on.

Unfortunately we are unable to prevent the “New Mail Icon” from appearing, even though only spam was received.
We are working on a solution, but unfortunately it is not so easy to solve.
