Editors' Review

This e-mail application aims to stop spam by letting you bounce e-mails from your POP3 server before you download them, fooling spammers into thinking your address isn't valid. You can add bounced senders to a personal blacklist that will bounce all future attempts automatically. If the spammer uses a program that purges bounced addresses, over time this should get your address off the list. Hotmail access is available only in the Pro edition of MailWasher, as is protection of multiple accounts. MailWasher Free works best for people with a single POP3 account, or as an extended demo for those who are considering buying the Pro version.

"Don't trust this company"

The program works ok but the company stinks.


The program is good enough but don't even think about paying for a lifetime upgrade. I did and then 2 years later they withdrew it saying I had to pay for the next upgrade. Completly dishonest

"Really Sad"

Absolutely None


Enough to make me write a negative review


I've been a Mailwasher user for years. Advertising something as "Free" (even though I paid for a never to expire license - which did)
and then making me sign-up for something I don't want isn't free.

"Great program for checking email"

Easy setup and allows me to check my email before it gets to my pc without any fuss. Good time saver.


Comes with's advertising based installer like all other software on, but you can opt out of installing the advertised software during installation


Solid program, well worth the time to give it a try

"Loaded a spam program, even though checked not to."

Easy to uninstall. You will also need to uninstall the popup advertising program that came with it.


Loaded a spam advertising program, even though checked not to in install.


Why would I want to install MORE SPAM to get rid of EXISTING SPAM?
Cnet is getting ridiculous to allow more and more of this in the downloads.
