MailWasher Free blocks spam with any e-mail client, because of
the unique way it works. Rather than blocking spam after you
download it, it checks mail on your server before you run your
email client. You then examine what you’ve got waiting, tell the
program to kill what you consider spam, and let the rest
The program lets you create blacklists and filters, so that it
will automatically detect and kill spam, without you having to take
manual action. It also does some basic anti-virus detection as
well. The program will work with just about any type of mail
server, including POP3, IMAP, and several Web-based email sites.
Consider it a first line of defense rather than a comprehensive
anti-spam program, because it can be difficult for you to recognize
spam on your own. A $40 for-pay version of the program, MailWasher
Pro, includes extra features, such as a constantly updated list
of known spam senders, and the ability to learn from you about what
you consider spam.
