MailWasher Pro automatically detects spam by scanning the body text, consulting online databases of known spam, together with blacklists users have created and optional user-configured filters.
The software has a simple three-step process:
1. Check incoming mail
2. Mark mail for deletion and/or bounce
3. Process mail
The software then assigns incoming mail with a status determining what action the user should take. MailWasher Pro has a unique bounce feature, which sends a message back to the sender appearing as though their e-mail address does not exist. Safely previewing mail from the ISP’s server, MailWasher Pro eliminates spam before it can pose a security threat to a users system. Users then process their mail, and can open their mail program from the MailWasher Pro window if desired. MailWasher Pro supports the POP3 protocol - which is the most common way to access e-mail. MailWasher Pro also supports Hotmail’s 110 million users who receive around 80% of all spam according to reports.
Because the software utilizes human intelligence, legitimate mail is never blocked and only messages that have been bounced are added to the users Blacklist. Trusted senders can be added to the Friends list ensuring messages from family, friends and colleagues are never flagged. The beauty of MailWasher Pro is that it’s FREE to download and won’t ever expire. MailWasher Pro is simple in design and very user-friendly, it takes only minutes to configure and learn how to use.
