Although they have a paid version, mailwasher also has a pretty good free version of their sotware as well. This is a must have for those who get bombarded with spam on a daily basis. Some of the key features they offer are:
Delete unwanted e-mails before you download the whole message. Youâ€™ll be able to see who the email is from, the subject, and the attachment. This will enable you to decide if you want to delete the email or keep it. A great way to stop viruses or large attachments.
Blacklist. Any e-mails you bounce back get their senders details put on the blacklist for easy removal if they come back. You can even set it to automatically bounce and delete blacklisted e-mails, or whole domains off the server. Plus, MailWasher can use external blacklists such as ORDB and Spam Cop or you can specify your own.
Friends List. Add your friends email addresses to MailWasher and they will always be recognised. You can even hide your friends from the screen so the spam is easy to recognise.
Preview. Easily preview the message in your email to see what the sender has to say before downloading it. Just double click on the message.
Bounce back unwanted e-mails so it looks as if your email address is not valid. This will make the sender think your address is no longer active so your name can be removed from their list. This unique feature is great for privacy and it couldnâ€™t be simpler!
Filtering. Effective filtering to automatically spot spam, plus it uses a customisable list of blacklisted e-mail senders and/or regular expressions to filter out potential spammer addresses and messages.
Email overlay. New messages will come in and will reside in the screen until processed.
Fast download of message headers, we have clocked speeds of 25 email message headers per second.
Simplicity. No flashy gimmicks, so easy to use that you wonâ€™t feel like you have to learn a whole new program. In fact it has the familiar look and feel of Outlook Express. It’s as easy as 1,2,3. Just check mail, mark for deletion/learning, then process mail.
Tell others. This feature allows you to tell others about MailWasher. It sends a short message to friends you nominate to tell them about MailWasher, its features and where they can download it.
Other features: Check mail at different intervals. Donâ€™t check mail at certain times. Play a sound when an email arrives, or be notified visually. Email log. Comprehensive help documentation on their site.
To top it off, it’s pretty easy to use as well. Check it out HERE.
