SilentMail is NOT installed by any of our other products. It can only be installed by downloading the SilentMail setup file - we guarantee you that it is not included with the setup of any of our other products (like Bells & Whistles, Easy Mail Merge or else).
Also, SilentMail can NOT be installed remotely: you need to be logged on as a Windows local administrator in order to install the program.
To check if SilentMail is actually installed on your computer, go to your Program Files folder, then to DS Development -> Silent Mail. If there is no SilentMail folder under the DS Development folder or under the Program Files folder, do a search on your computer for a folder named Silent Mail. If you can not find such a folder, it means that the program is not installed on your computer.
Plus, lately we received similar reports from other user, regarding an anti-spyware program that reported Bells & Whistles as SilentMail. On these cases, it is an error on the spyware checker algorithm that confuses Bells & Whistles with Silent Mail - they both use the same kind of anti-piracy protections, most likely this generates the confusion.
Bottom line: SilentMail can only be installed by someone who logs in as a local administrator (not remotely) and who actually uses the silentmail.exe setup file. The program is not delivered, downloaded or installed with any of our other products.
