Hi there! :thumbsup:
I've been getting an influx of spam to my email accounts lately. I heard of a download for Mailwasher, but need more information. I'm not sure who offers this + if it's a free service or not. Sounded like a good product as I can "train" it to learn what I feel is unwanted spam at my mailboxes.

Anyone out there know of or ever use it? :flowers:

Thanks

honu1,

Welcome to Bleeping Computer,

I use Firetrust's Mailwasher Pro. It works well for my applications. It is not free though. Here is a link for you to research and see if it is what you need. MailWasher® Pro Overview link

Here's a similar ap, Eprompter, that IS freeware and actually works better for me than Mailwasher did (although I had the freeware Mailwasher a long time ago and it was quirky)

This ap will also do Hotmail and Gmail and many others as well as your ISP's pop3 accounts. It will monitor up to 16 accounts.

Hi Honu1

Just to add a 3rd to the list that you might check out:

http://www.poppeeper.com/

Like the others, it supports multiple different types of accounts and it's free. I've had good luck with it so far. It's easy to set up and very easy to use. Had good luck with ePrompter too. Never tried MailWasher.

Thanks everyone for your input :thumbsup:
Now I've got 2 more sites to consider-lol! I don't really mind paying for a service as long as it does what it's supposed to. My main concern is keeping my system as safe as possible! :flowers:

Again, thanks for all your help. :trumpet:
