5.3 is the latest version so you are OK. It is definitely a handy program to have because it makes getting rid of unwanted/uninvited spam email before you download email to your regular email client very easy, especially if you have a lot of spam email.
When I right click on the icon to check new mail, I get an error message that none of the servers could be found or connected.
If you can, give the specific error that you get when this happens.
I have to click on it a second time to bring up the main page of MailWasher.
This leads me to believe that it sits in your taskbar minimized. You can keep it that way if you want to, or you can close down the program after you are done with your email session.
what info needs to be entered
To do so automatically, assuming that the info on your dektop email client (Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Eudora, etc..) is entered correctly, from within Mailwasher go to Tools > Accounts
& from the box that pops up, choose Import
& click once to highlight whichever applies, & click Import
on the bottom of that window; you should now see the account listed in the Accounts
window, click Close
& you are done. If you want to do this manually, choose Run Wizard
from the Accounts
window. By the way, if any accounts are already listed in the Accounts
window, you can highlight each of the accounts listed & click on Properties
to doublecheck that the information is entered correctly.
If all of this seems overwhelming, a good place to start would be to choose the Help
button & select either Program Help
. Both of those contain a wealth of helpful information to better understand how Mailwasher works. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
