MailWasher Pro: It's Easy to Use

MailWasher Pro learns and adapts to your personal preferences by letting you teach it the kind of email you want to receive. Apart from being the most effective software to fight spam, MailWasher is probably the easiest anti-spam software ever created -- in fact, it's as simple as 1-2-3!

  1. Press the Check Mail Button.
  2. Mark unwanted emails for learning, report to SpamCop, or delete
  3. Press Process Mail to get rid of unwanted messages.

MailWasher Pro: Features

  • Simplicity: No flashy gimmicks, so easy to use that you won't feel like you have to learn a whole new program. In fact it has the familiar look and feel of Outlook Express. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3 -- literally! Just check mail, mark for deletion/report/bounce, then process mail.
  • Simple to Set Up: MailWasher Pro Wizards prompt you for email account information so set up takes little more than a few seconds to complete. A comprehensive help system and animated tutorials are also included.
  • Works with your existing email program: whether it is Outlook, Eudora, Netscape or any other program, you can have as many email accounts as you want to check with MailWasher Pro. Support for POP3, AOL, Hotmail & MSN and IMAP accounts!
  • View your email before it's downloaded to your computer: now you can see what email is waiting for you so you can deal to it effectively.
  • Heuristics: MailWasher Pro software analyzes each email as it arrives and warns you if it is suspected junk mail using fuzzy logic and filtering. The Learning Filters learn from the spam and good email you receive to deliver you a robust and efficient approach to solving your spam problem. The Heuristic Virus Scanning blocks potential viruses by examining each email for any code it thinks is suspicious and could indicate a virus.
  • Custom Filters: MailWasher Pro software effectively filters to automatically spot spam, plus uses a customizable list of blacklisted email senders and/or regular expressions to filter out potential spammer addresses and messages. Friends can be added to a "Friends List" so their mail is always recognized as legitimate.
  • Block Known Origins of Spam: MailWasher Pro allows you to check the origin of the email received against DNS spam blacklist servers, including the ones submitted to SpamCop, ORDB,,, and other free blacklist services!
  • Report Spam to SpamCop: MailWasher Pro is one of the only Inbox Cleaning solutions that integrates automatic spam email submission directly to SpamCop, a widely-used and highly respected DNS blacklist web site! This will save you oodles of time, and best of all -- you'll be deeply satisfied knowing that you're socking it to the Spammers!

    Side note: A DNS Blacklist is especially useful in the war against spam because it indirectly shuts down the spammer on a wide scale; if a spammer's web site address exists in the DNS blacklist (through SpamCop, for example), many organizations -- and especially Internet Service Providers -- will refuse to receive email from the blacklisted site.
  • Quick Reply Feature: Now you can launch a 'new email' to make quick replies to emails from the MailWasher Pro grid without having to load your email program first.
  • Delete unwanted email: before you download them. A great way to stop viruses or large attachments.
  • Support via email and upgrades so you stay up-to-date with the latest version.
