    "Good but ..."

    September 22, 2007  |   By GrEaSeLiTeNiN

    Version: MailWasher Pro 5.3

    Pros

    - One of the better mail filter programs.

    Cons

    - All mail filter programs just get tiresome and ineffective after a while. Spam will just find other ways in. And you have to constantly add to the never ending blacklist and keywords.

    - Hence, a better but harsher way is to simply filter out any mail not from people in your address book. But MailWasher and most/all mail filter programs strangely are not designed to do this simple task despite their array of filtering features.

    BUT OUTLOOK EXPRESS CAN! SIMPLY FOLLOW THESE STEPS:-

    1. Open Outlook Express.

    2. Go to Tools > Message Rules > Mail.

    3. A "New Mail Rule" window should appear. (If the "Message Rules" window appears instead, you already have a rule. Click "New" in this case to get to the New Mail Rule window.)

    4. In the New Mail Rule window, select the "Condition"; "Where the From line contains people". Then under "Rule Description", click the highlighted text, "contains people".

    5. In the new window "Select People", click "Address Book" and add all of your Address Book entries to the "From" list on the right. Click OK.

    6. Back in the Select People window, click "Options". In the new window, change the 1st rule to, "Message does not contain the people below" and make sure the 2nd rule is, "Message matches any one of the people below". Click OK.

    7. Back in the New Mail Rule window, select your "Actions". I suggest, "Move it to the specified folder". At the bottom for Rule Description, select the highlighted text, "specified". In the new window "Move", specifiy the folder you want. Click OK.

    8. Give a name to your new rule. Click OK.

    9. Click "Apply Now". (Apply your new rule to your Inbox).

    10. All mail not from people in your address book will now go to the folder you specified. (You can review them there incase there is a legitimate mail.)

    "Careful with the Bounce feature!"

    April 5, 2007  |   By armedwithjello

    Version: MailWasher Pro 5.3

    Pros

    The program allows me to preview just the text of e-mails, including headers, without having the risk of malicious scripts running like in Outlook Express. I can delete spam and malware before it ever touches my hard drive. I've also used it to bounce messages to people I actually know, who were harassing me via e-mail. When their messages started bouncing, they gave up trying to contact me that way.

    Cons

    The reply-to address on a spam is frequently a fake, so when you bounce a message back to a spammer you often get your own message bounced back to you. Hotmail noticed this happening a lot in my account and saw it as spamming activity, and shut down my account. Fortunately I managed to explain what happened and they reactivated my account. Since then I have turned off bouncing from my Hotmail accounts.

    On occasion the program hangs, but overall it works well.

    "A definite WINNER!! Forget =ALL= other Spam S/W!!"

    March 30, 2007  |   By Chasms

    Version: MailWasher Pro 5.3

    Pros

    *Easy to set up!

    *Easy to Learn!

    *Most work is Done FOR you!

    *Has the ability to "Bounce" Spam back to the sender 'as if' your email address was no longer valid. <--=HAS= to slow down or STOP Spam after awhile. BIGGEST PLUS, IMO!

    *Very Stable Program...even the trial version!

    *Great Help System & Support.

    Cons

    After over 1 month of use, I haven't seen a single con at all!

    "Simply Superior"

    March 27, 2007  |   By horustwohawks

    Version: MailWasher Pro 5.3

    Pros

    I am an 'it' professional. I have used this product for years, and thus also watched its development. I have great respect for Nick and his team, and the spirit in which they are invested in this work. This is the product of a serious dedication to no frills protection and privacy safeguarding for the 'community'... meaning you and me, and not for serving some corporate interest.

    While you are checking it out, you should also check out what's available through the community forums they have forged with others for raising awareness about email safety, fighting spam, and so much more.

    "the greatest - most useful program. It does exactly what it is there for."

    March 25, 2007  |   By 2nyb

    Version: MailWasher Pro 5.3

    Pros

    no spam -none- - gets into our inbox - we can quickly recognize it and get rid of it (and bounce it back to the sender). MW is always the first thing we look at when we sit down at our computer.

    March 22, 2007  |   By SamSym

    Version: MailWasher Pro 5.3

    Pros

    Easy to set filters to mark new spam, just a checkmark in a box does it. It also checks with several spam databases to check for junk mail. It checks my Yahoo!, Hotmail, AOL, Gmail email addresses. Plus of course the Pop email server too.
