Then make sure you have installed all of the latest service packs for Office.



Next do a complete uninstall of SpamBully for Outlook and make sure you reinstall the latest version.

3. Then download the latest version from and install SpamBully.

Make sure Outlook is closed while you do this.



If you still have issues, it may be that a file in Outlook has become corrupted.

Do a search for the file outcmd.dat.  When you find this file with Outlook CLOSED,  rename this file to something else.  Then when you reopen Outlook it should automatically receate this file.
