I finally feel I am making progress against spam using Mailwasher Pro. Here is how it works:
Step one, MailWasher Pro looks at all my email accounts and identifies spam (and does a great job of it).
Step two, MailWasher Pro deletes the spam.
Step three, I open my regular email reader (Outlook) and I pull down my email.
This tool is probably saving me 5 minutes per day that I don't have to look through the spam folders of my email accounts for emails falsely marked as spam. Mailwasher Pro always gets it right. Click the banner link below to try it for yourself!
