What are people saying about MailWasher Pro 2012

Bob Criswell I have used this program for several years and I love being able to see and control what's coming into my inbox BEFORE it gets to my inbox. Allows plenty of control over what email makes it onto your computer.
May 16 2009 at 3:30am Copy Link
TopDog This is a fantastic price for one of the most valuable utilities you can buy. I have been using this since the beginning and its evolved into an essential tool. You can control, sort and even view e-mail before it ever gets to your computer. This is a must have tool it will even learn spam and mark it for you.

J L Does it have lifetime upgrades for free for ever?
Will the next version works on Windows 2000 machines? (I read something about a beta version that needs Microsoft Frameworks).
Is there going to be a portable version in a near future? Is it going to be free for already upgraded users?

May 20 2009 at 5:18am Copy Link
Nick Bolton Yes, this version of MailWasher Pro does have lifetime upgrades for free. We are re-writing MailWasher at the moment and it should be ready in around 2-3 months time. This is a completely new product and we'll likely charge a nominal $10 upgrade fee, except for users who purchased MailWasher Pro in the last 6 months can have it for free. We've never charged an upgrade fee for 8 years and since this is a new product with a lot of work gone in to it we hope people will understand.
The next version (preview here: does use the .NET 3.5SP1 framework to display it's graphics (using WPF which is standard in Windows 7 and a 10-30 MB upgrade for others) and it enhances the usability a lot. WIndows 2000 and prior versions of WIndows are not be supported by this version of .NET, but in saying that once we've finished with this new rewrite we'll be making a cross platform version for all Windows OS's, Linux and Mac. It shouldn't take too long as the backend is already cross platform and we only need to copy the user interface, although it may not have all the fancy enhancements (like zoom) which you can do with WPF in Windows.
Firetrust Limited - May 20 2009 at 8:30am Copy Link
J L Does that new product come with lifetime upgrades too? I mean, is the $10 upgrade fee just an exceptional fee due to that extra re-coding work or it will be charged in the next upgrades too?

Is there any info about the USB version? Thanks
May 21 2009 at 1:56am Copy Link
Nick Bolton Sorry for forgetting the other question. I do believe it will be able to be used on a USB drive as all the settings are local as opposed to being in the registry. Well, it will be simple to adapt anyway.
As for the ongoing upgrade pricing, we haven't really considered it yet. MailWasher is a fairly mature product and we're replicating it all in the rewritten version and adding more which people have asked for, so I'm not sure at this stage what we'd put in a future version - themes perhaps? There's no point in adding unnecessary bloat. If we were to charge for an upgrade, it would be $10 again and only for major version releases, but we haven't made any decisions on this either way.

Adrian Williams will you be promoting sitehound in the near future?. I've just bought mailwasher and am looking forward to the new version release.

J L Hello,
I have bought MailWasher Pro and I did not get the FirstAlert! Account info.
Does this version come without it?
I have just installed MailWasher and after activated it, the FirstAlert gets deactivated.
I have activated MailWasher in shadow mode by mistake, so I had to reactivate it again later.

Q3)Can I buy the license now and activate it later ?

J L I bought MailWasher Pro during the last bitsdujour's offer (22/05/09), because I thought that I would get the new version for free (you could read the old comments). But my 6th month is going to past and the new version is not released yet.
Nov 18 2009 at 2:16am Copy Link
Nick Bolton Yes apologies for this, it's been a lot more complicated than we imagined. I'm still happy to honour this as we said at the time, so please get in contact at the time.
Firetrust Limited - Nov 18 2009 at 8:10am Copy Link
J L OK, thanks very much for your support. I am really happy!

I was a little bit worried because the current version is buggy on my Windows 2000 system. (Usually when bouncing SPAM, they are not bounced and sometimes the program gets like frozen or I have to press the "Process Mail" button again because emails are not processed.)

Greeting and good sales.
Nov 18 2009 at 10:22am Copy Link
Mike G I've been a fan of Mailwasher for years and running it with no problems on XP. I purchased Mailwasher and Firetrust Benign for my parents too and don't have to worry about email-based malware much anyymore.

I love being able to filter out junk before it ever gets to my computer. If something bad ever did get though--which is unlikely with Mailwasher once it's configured and trained properly--their other tool Benign will detect ALL potentially dangerous code (even if hidden in tiny graphics) and render it, well... benign.

Sorry if I sound like a commercial. I like to support software vendors that produce quality applications AND don't charge frequent and exhorbitant upgrade fees like many others are doing these days--even when "new" versions contain few if any meaningful enhancements. Nick Bolton and Firestrust are at the opposite end of the spectrum--constantly working on improvements and I haven't been charged a single upgrade fee for many years.

You can see above how customer friendly they are. Many developers stopped supporting Windows 2000 a long time ago.
Nov 18 2009 at 11:43pm Copy Link
Sputnik OK...

We will have free lifetime upgrades if we buy it...

But what about the 1 year subscription to FirstAlert! antispam updates ?

What is the annual fee for this "FirstAlert! antispam updates" when your first year is over ?

If there is a fee for this, what happens if we don't want to pay for it ?

Will the software stop from working ? If it would continue to work, what would be the functionnalities which would become unavailable ?

Thank you for your answers.
Nov 20 2009 at 3:57am Copy Link
Nick Bolton The 1 year subscription is an optional component but MailWasher won't stop working if you don't renew it. FirstAlert antispam updates is a community spam filter addition - we collect spam reports from users and honey pots and our users interact with it in real-time so it marks spam and helps train your spam filters. Other than that, MailWasher will continue to work forever
Firetrust Limited - Nov 20 2009 at 5:25am Copy Link
Sputnik Thank you Nick !

But I still don't know what is the annual fee for this "FirstAlert! antispam updates".

Could you please tell me how much it cost ?
Nov 20 2009 at 6:16am Copy Link
Nick Bolton Sure, it's $29.95 per year

screeno man I've been using MailWasherPro for almost 3 years now. I am very satisfied (in fact I'd say I was extremely satisfied!) with the program and with the support. I plan to purchase a new license instead of renewing my subscription. I hope that is cool with Nick. Keep up the superb work! :)

Brian F Slightly confused with your statement:

"this version of MailWasher Pro does have lifetime upgrades for free. We are re-writing MailWasher at the moment and it should be ready soon (public beta end of this month). This is a completely new product and we'll likely charge a nominal $10 upgrade fee"

If the license includes free upgrades why would there be a $10 UPGRADE fee?

Do you mean even though you state there are free upgrades for life, that this policy can change at any time?
Nov 21 2009 at 4:00pm Copy Link
Nick Bolton Sure, it's for the lifetime of the product - so the current Pro product as it's stands has always had free updates. We're re-writing it from scratch and it's a different product with probably a different name, but we're offering a $10 upgrade to it.
Firetrust Limited - Nov 21 2009 at 4:22pm Copy Link
Keith Anderson So, MailWasher Pro is going to have further development and upgrades? Or, has it come to the end of it's life?

Free updates/upgrades mean nothing if it's not being developed anymore.

I think this is what Brian is getting at. I could be wrong.

Nov 21 2009 at 4:58pm Copy Link
Nick Bolton MailWasher Pro as it stands will mostly get bug fixes from now on. It's pretty old and adding further features can get pretty complex and time consuming as it's had various developers do their own thing with it over the years. This year we've done 4 feature updates to it and many more bug fix builds. It will still be available on the site.
I'll admit the free updates won't mean as much now - if you'd bought it years ago then you would have got a better deal than buying it today, so that's why we're giving anyone who buys the pro version within 6 months of the new MailWasher launch, a free upgrade instead of the $10 charge.
Firetrust Limited - Nov 21 2009 at 6:17pm Copy Link
Vijay Nagarajan 1)Is 1 yr of "first alert" bundled with this offer or do I have to buy it separately ?
2)If I understand correctly, people who buy in this offer (on 23 Nov), will be entitled to free upgrade to the soon to be released new MailWasher Pro. Right ?

Nov 22 2009 at 8:03pm Copy Link
Nick Bolton Yes it works with Windows 7 and Windows Live/Mail. It works with all email programs.
Giving lifetime free updates and paying for continual development is not the best business decision, but we haven't made any decisions around this. If we do charge for updates, it would likely be for major updates and again, only a $10 fee.

Adrian Williams Expensive renewal for the latest version - mailwasher pro 2011 has changed my view towards this software - view the forums for the number of unhappy customers.

Originally suggested annual renwal - around $10 - whereas the actual fee is $19.99 and if you choose not to renew - the software stops working.

I uninstalled it when renewal time arrived.

You decide.
Aug 12 2011 at 11:20am Copy Link
Nick Bolton Thanks for your feedback. We never originally set a renewal price when MailWasher 2010 was first released, but after some time and pressure people wanted us to set a price. This was pretty hard from our point of view as we'd given everyone a $10 upgrade at the time and really had no idea on what the take up would be like or how many people would renew. After some debate in the forums with some more influential users we came to a price of $10 per year. We knew it was a bit risky at this price and we knew after some time we'd have to eventually raise the price, but that reality has come sooner than we expected with increased costs. We do expect to keep this price steady from now on and we've increased each license so it can now be used on 3 computers.

We decided to make people renew otherwise we’d run in to all sorts of issues with people who didn’t renew but wanted bug fixes which were in future versions, or people who ran very old versions and expected it to run on newer versions of Windows etc, so we decided to make it mandatory to renew so everyone would always have access to the latest versions. MailWasher is quite a support intensive product due to the vagaries of email, so it makes sense to always be able to give people access to the latest versions.

We hope you'll see the value in what we deliver over the year to pay what we think is an inexpensive cost compared to many other services.

Harald Vogel Hello,

I'm already a registered user. Will you offer with this discount also the lifetime license?

Sep 3 2011 at 1:58am Copy Link
Nick Bolton Sorry, this is not for the lifetime license which we don't have available at the moment anyway
Firetrust Limited - Sep 3 2011 at 12:10pm Copy Link
Adrian Williams For any previous owners, this is the cheapest way of upgrading. Just to note, the cost is for 1 years use - that's it. After the 1 year the software STOPS WORKING. Lots of comments on their website about this if you need further info. Usually $19.95 per year to use. I found a lifetime licence for $59 but chose not to renew. I'm using the free Spamihilator after my mailwasher pro licence ran out.
The software is good but can put load on your system, many users have gone back to the earlier version that will run after the 12months have expired. Personally I was disappointed after buying MWP and then upgrading to 2011, then to be ransomed into upgrading or losing functionality of the software. The indication was that the annual renewal would be in the order of $10. When the actual cost was $19.95 it upset a few users. More can be seen here :-

Nick Bolton That's correct, we introduced an annual license cost to it of $20 per year. This helps to pay for support, updates and real-time spam services we offer. It's just a cost of doing business for us which we'd been absorbing for the past 10 years and our customers want us to be around in the future. To compensate we now allow the license to be used on up to 3 computers.

Nick Bolton Hosted spam filtering with netaddress is probably quite good as you mention, but Mailwasher differs in that it lets you view all your email before it gets to your computer, so you also get to decide on what email you delete or keep. I'm sure there's all sorts of other email you don't want on in your inbox, and Mailwasher will help to get rid of this.

Yes, Mailwasher works with the The Bat!, it works with all email programs.

Nick Bolton Good spotting, thanks. I've changed this now to 3 computers. Mailwasher is not designed to work as a plugin, although it's something we may look at in the future as we're working on an email encryption product which works with all email clients in a kind of plugin way.

Glen Hilton Have been a MWP user since the beginnings and would recommend it to all.

E. Douglas Jensen I tried Mail Washer when it was first introduced and it was a disaster! There are zillions of lazy people who subscribe to mailing lists, and then when they decide they don't want to get any more mail from that list, instead of unsubscribing (using the unsubscribe link usually at the bottom of the messages) they just reported it to Mail Washer as spam. That resulted in lots of subscribers to the mailing lists no longer getting these non-spam messages. There were many angry complaints on the web about Mail Washer letting lazy people ruin other peoples' email subscriptions. I suspect that the percentage of lazy inconsiderate people has gone up not down since then. Unless MW verifies that each reported message is in fact actual spam, it will kill emails that many or most people want or even need (e.g., for their jobs).

Alan I am wondering if this is possible.
I have my Droid which downloads all my emails, along with Outlook on my laptop.
Is it possible to have MWP move the suspected spam emails so my Droid won't download them, and then when I get home I can check my spam to confirm that it's spam using MWP?

I use and want to use IMAP.

I don't want to assume that this can be done.

Sep 6 2011 at 5:40am Copy Link
Michael Kenward Beware the "licence" fee.

People who signed up at one price suddenly found themselves facing a large increase to the $20 mentioned here.

There is no guarantee that it will not go up again before the next round of renewals.

As other software houses manage to sustain their businesses without such a high annual rental, I take Nick Bolton's explanation for this large cost increase with a pinch of salt.
Sep 6 2011 at 6:47am Copy Link
VLM I've been a MWP user for years, and I would like to describe briefly what I believe are some benefits of this program.

First, it is an excellent spam catcher. The program supports extensive filter creation that can catch spoofing (a common spamming technique where the reply-to email address does not match the sender's email address, which can make spam look like it came from your account).

Second, you can create very specific, highly selective filters to catch anything. Supports regular expressions. I use this feature more than the spam catching. For example, if I participate in / subscribe to a discussion group or forum thread, and people take off on an endless discussion about a topic that does not interest me, I can simply create a quick filter and block out that discussion thread ... without blocking out anything else from that discussion group or forum. Or, if there are certain regular messages, such as promotions for FOO that some member sends around every month, I can block those without touching the rest.

To be honest, it is this second capability that makes MWP worth the annual license fee.

I have almost no problems with false negatives, because the program's learning feature is quite excellent. You do have to invest some time in the beginning to teach it, and if you wish to create filters. But it's easy and quick to do, and at least for me, well worth it.

Regarding the licensing fee, I think there was a period where many small software vendors, hungry for clients, made promises they could not keep. Firetrust ,he maker of MWP, certainly stepped into this trap.

The simple reality is that we, the customers want updated software. And we all want excellent and timely support. People comment here frequently about these topics, as we all surely know.

Well, I can attest that MWP is in constant development, and that their support team, both in the forums and via email, is EXCELLENT ... timely and spot-on in their responses.

So the folks at Firetrust did change their policy. So did the folks at RoboForm and at many other companies. If they had not made this change, they might not be in business today. Speaking only for myself, I understand the need to do this, particularly in a product that uses an ongoing service.

Just my experience and opinions.

PS: Nick, still interested in that permanent delete feature, like the one in Outlook and some other mail programs. :):)

Nick Bolton Hi everyone, sorry for the late reply - I just got notified of all these comments just now.

@ E. Douglas Jensen: We pretty much use 100% honeypots now instead of user submitted spam, due to false positives in the past.
@ Michael Kenward: We have no plans to increase the price and in terms of a renewal fee, $20 is not high compared to many software products. We're also looking at licensing all future products under a single $20 annual fee, so you get all for one payment of $20 a year.
@Presiding Emissary....: Thanks for the kind comments. Yes MW will work with SSL/TLS
@Wally Walters: If you'd care to elaborate? User interface I imagine. We're actually in the process of re-doing the user interface. The current one is built on .NET and some people on older pc's have found it a bit slow in places, so we're replacing it with something faster and which works on Macs as well. We'll have a new release in a few weeks which addresses some UI issues and adds long awaited features.

Did you see my comment above?
It might be a basic question, but it's one I need to know if it will work for me.

I am assuming that MWP could put what it thinks is spam in a folder that my phone won't download, assuming that it's running all the time on my laptop??? Not sure, but it would be important for me, so if you have time to answer, I would appreciate it.

Nick Bolton @ Wally Walters. Thanks for letting me know. Yes, we've had a few users who don't like .NET and fair enough. It just allowed us to do quite a few things at the time, but technology has moved on and we'll be able to do some better things without .NET in the future. Some people prefer the grey look of older applications, so it's a matter of taste

@Alan Sawyer, sorry for missing your comment. Mailwasher won't be able to move spam to a different IMAP folder (but it's a good idea!), but an alternative is to have Mailwasher auto-delete spam messages when it checks, say every 5 or 10 minutes. They are then sent to the Mailwasher recycle bin where you can review and rescue any if you like. There's a few options to either auto delete senders who are on a blacklist, everyone but people on your friends list, or spam which reaches a certain level of spamyness.

Cheryl Rutherford I have to say that I had this SW over a year and a half ago, and it just didn't do the job that Norton does, so I did not renew my subscription. Sorry. BUT, if you have Norton 360 (AV/Firewall), then it automatically does this for you. It checks your email for Spam, JunkMail and anything else that should not be there.

This is probably for people who use the freebie A/V programs that do not have email add-ons.
Sep 6 2011 at 12:04pm Copy Link
Nick Bolton Hi Sherry, I guess the difference in something like Nortons to Mailwasher is that Mailwasher lets you view all your email before it gets to your computer and remove anything else you don't want, instead of the automated approach of Nortons. Just depends how you want to manage your email.

VLM Just for clarification, Nick, when you say "auto delete email", you mean to the MWP recycle bin, not right off the server, correct? (That would be the permanent delete function I've requested and about which you've expressed some reservations, yes?

Nick Bolton Well, it does delete it from the server, and leaves a copy in the recycle bin.
Firetrust Limited - Sep 6 2011 at 6:58pm Copy Link
VLM Ohhhhh ... then that explains why MWP can only partially restore a message longer than the # of characters downloaded. I never did understand that, until now. Thanks!

Here is where the permanent delete feature would be nice. If it's already gone from the server, and if I, as user, am quite certain that everything filter X will ever catch is something I never, ever wish to see, then why make me look at it? I understand that it would be my risk ... and I understand that this is no different than going for a walk on a public road, which always has some element of risk. The risk should be mine to take ... if you see what I mean.

Robert Bull I leave a lot of mail on the server, as a precaution against aborted runs and in case I want to test other email clients. My regular e-mail client is set to delete old messages, as and when I see fit. Last time I tried Mailwasher (some years back) it didn't keep note of what messages I'd downloaded so far, and insisted on starting from the first message in each account. I had to repeatedly go through each account and train it anew. Then, one day, for no reason that I could understand, it started deleting old messages. I abandoned it at that point. Have these problems been overcome, please?
Jan 30 2012 at 7:00am Copy Link
Nick Bolton Hi Robert

I can't say we've had any issues like this where it would delete old messages. It does have auto-delete spam functionality but this has to be turned on. If you're leaving messages on the server, then there's also usually a setting to only leave it on the server for X days, after which the old messages drop off, so if I'm not mistaken, it could have been this.
But I'm pleased to say, Mailwasher now downloads the most recent emails first when checking, so you won't have to go through the old emails first to get to your most recent messages.

J Scott Nick, I've loved Mailwasher a long time and bought back in the 3.x-6.x era (before Firetrust). The move to annual (2010, 2011, 2012) releases has me confused about the licensing, though -- I bought MW 2010 on a promo back when it was current but something made me think it was a "timebomb" and would stop actually looking up spam after the 1-year license was up. I actually never ended up installing it due to this (didn't want to lose training, etc) and stuck with my trusty 6.54. I'm curious if I totally misunderstood that-- does 1 year just mean you only get 1 year of upgrades, or does the software lose functionality after the 1 year (or whatever the license term is) is up?

I will say the 3 year pricing looks very attractive. Thanks for offering this here!
Feb 2 2012 at 12:15am Copy Link
Nick Bolton Hi there,

With the 20XX versions onwards we have moved to a software as a service/rental model which is $20 a year to pay for upgrades, support and real-time spam blocking (which we used to do for free for the past 10 years), so currently if don't renew the sub, then the 'Wash Mail' functionality ceases to work. You won't lose any settings etc, so as soon as you pay the subscription, you'll be able to 'wash mail' again.
We're also moving to a cloud based Mailwasher, so you get browser, desktop, tablet, mobile versions all included for the annual cost. We'll be releasing test versions of these very soon.

Mailwasher allows you to quickly do this so you don't have to wade through it the unwanted stuff and therefore allow you to keep a tidy inbox. Plus if you're removing junk before it gets to your computer then you've got less chance of getting infected with email laden malware.
Mailwasher also allows you to inspect details of suspect email more than a lot of email clients allow you.

J S Dear Nick Bolton,

I have mainly used Gmail's own webmail access over the last few years but I'm sick of the changes ans want to go back to an "on computer" email solution which also means (happily) going back to using Mailwasher.

As an original version (v6.x.x) Licensed owner as well as having bought the 2010 upgrade that Firetrust offered to the original owners:

Q1. What's the difference between 2012 and 2010?

Q2. better yet is there a comparison (spreasheet or tick list) page showing all 3 versions and their features (or what they lack by comparison) on the Firetrust site?

I may be incorrect but I thought I could use 2010 forever, however it looks as though Pro 2012 only has a limited '12 months of use' license (forgive me if i'm wrong as I haven't been able to read all of the above comments as time was limited).

One final question: If I update to 2012 version do I definitely lose the lifetime use that I had with the previous 2 licensed versions.

I'm happy to accept a private email if you don't wish to (or dont have the time too) post the answers on Bitsdujour-com.
Feb 2 2012 at 10:31pm Copy Link
Nick Bolton Hi JS, nice to see you back.

In reply to your questions.
1. Essentially the 2012, is a follow on from the 2011 version, which is a follow on from the 2010 version. So, more features, bug fixes etc. If you have a paid up license, then you'll always have access to the latest version.

2. We've really only got the old 6.54 version and the 20XX versions. There's definite benefits to the 2012 version, but some people like the old version with it's grey look and it's faster loading with older computers. The only thing the 20XX version doesn't have at the moment is stats, but they will come soon. But it has many other features. We're also working on a browser, mobile and tablet version so you'll get all those with your subscription.

3. We decided to make people renew otherwise we’d run in to all sorts of issues with people who didn’t renew but wanted bug fixes which were in future versions, or people who ran very old versions and expected it to run on newer versions of Windows etc, so we decided to make it mandatory to renew so everyone would always have access to the latest versions. MailWasher is quite a support intensive product due to the vagaries of email, so it makes sense to always be able to give people access to the latest versions. If you don't renew then the 'Wash Mail' functionality stops.

4. You can always use the old 6.54 version forever if you have an existing license key and it won't expire. We're still supporting it but ultimately we'd like people to update to a later version and give people a clear upgrade path.

Jeff Wilson Downloaded and installed the trial. It's working beautifully. Couldn't be easier. I'm looking forward to the key. I have noticed that after running a batch of new mail thru Mailwasher, and then opening Outlook Express to read/view the good mail, if I leave my Outlook Express Email opened or running, any new email bypasses Mailwasher and goes straight to my Outlook Express Inbox. Does anyone know how to get around this without closing Outlook Express. I mean, new mail might arrive while I'm reading my email or on the internet after having clicked a link in an email.

You'll need to turn off automatic checking in Outlook Express first, although MailWasher should have turned this off for you.

Jorma Nahkola If i will order a license now, will the 12 month subscription begin at today or at the time of activation of the license? (I have a couple of weeks my current license left.) Thanks!

Brian H Hi- this looks like a great program! But I am confused on 1 issue. In "Policy' tab here on BDJ it says "Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for current subscriptions"; however when I look in product FAQ on Firetrust's website, instructions for paid renewals are given under topic "How can I renew MailWasher Pro?". However, under another FAQ topic I read "occasionally we offer a lifetime license option as a special promotion"- so I am wondering, is this giveaway today here on BDJ one of those occasions, or will we have to pay to renew subscription every year after first year expires. Thanks, in advance, for clarification on this issue, and a special thanks for your generosity of this offer here on BDJ- subscription-based or lifetime! :-) -Brian

Tom Billings I've been using Mailwasher since around the beginning of it.... has to be around late 90's or 2000. I can't say enough about how good this program is! There are a number of tools in it (spam lists, First Alert, the learning system, etc) that are very helpful but even the basic functions are more than enough for my needs. The" blacklist" and "friends" list categorizing work very well and "pre-sort" spam for me when I've flagged certain domains and so on. One of the cool things has always been the ability to skim thru part of a message to see what's in it if it's not obvious at first and mark it OK or "blacklist". Very rarely does anything I don't want make it into my final downloaded email, and that's because I wasn't paying attention to Mailwasher before getting mail! I already have 2 licenses (one for personal and one for home business LAN) so probably won't bother with the promotion but the rest of you... go for it! You won't find a better one out there IMO.

Royce Englehart This is the best email filtering program I ever used. I bought MailWasher years ago (I'd hate to think how many years it's been) when it first came out, and it was the easiest to use and did the best job @ filtering my email of anything out there. If I remember correctly there use to be a feature called "blacklist" with which you could mark senders and/or domains as known spammers (not real sure but I think the hosting companies of the spammers/domains were also sent some kind of notice). Love this program. Unfortunately, when I realized MicroShaft wasn't a necessary evil (just Evil) I started using Linux (about 7 years ago). I haven't used MailWasher in @ least that many years and more because even before I got rid of Windows I started getting rid of MS programs (Outlook, Word, etc.) where I could. Bottom line, if you are still using Evil MS Windows and it's accompanying Evil programs you shouldn't be without MailWasher Pro.

Little Bear Alright, my comment may come acorss as spam (hopefully not!) But the developer of the software has something REALLY REALLY good here. I never expected a program like Mail Washer to be so easy to use and configure with no glitches or bugs in the importing process, plus I love that Outlook email chime when a new message comes in! Hopefully my readers on my blog will think this program is easy too. If anyone wants to see the program in action, you can see today's write up of this program with a little humor involved.

David Nelson Any chance you have web-based version to filter our emails? We have several mailboxes, but we do also use forward email feature (without using mailbox). Reason I asked because we have some email accounts forwarded to our board members.

Remb Randt Mailwasher is a good programm, but today, while every newer mail client and the providers offer junk mail filtering, it seems a bit outdated to me.
The trial version is time limited, that´s OK, but the registered version should be full and unrestricted forever. It is usual that only a new version stepup will cost. I do not need any autofiltering cababilities, I might use it only for prefiltering mails and bouncing them back. So I do not understand why it is time limited. In my eyes this is more a 12 month trial than a full version.

For fully automatic mail-filtering I recommend "Spamihilator", it is doing a great job and is free forever.

I'm a long-time MW user (10 years, I think). I'm running 2011 1.2.0 because I've had such horrible experience with the upgrades. So if I download this new version, will I lose all of my filters and black/white lists? Or will the upgrade be seamless?

MC I picked this up during the free license offer here and am having great success with the program running on Win 7 x64. I had used the subscription version of Cloudmark Desktop One and this is hand s down a much better program. After a year of "learning" along with marking emails as "good" and "SPAM", the Cloudmark program continued to misidentify emails from the same sources. MW "remembers" my classifications and doesn't misidentify any sources that I have marked myself. I added more "black list" servers to the list under the Origin of Spam module (most notably Barracuda Networks reputation based server) and the identification rate is close to 100% accuracy. I have not had any problems with good emails being misidentified as SPAM. I set up an account with Knujon to report SPAM directly from the program without the need to go to another website and confirm those reports. I have subscribed to SPAMCOP in the past and you must go to the website to check and report SPAM; I have also used Checkpoints hardware firewall with spam filtering, it wasn't cheap and there were multiple technical issues with the SPAM filtering module. Mailwasher Pro is the best desktop solution that I have come across and even at a $29.95 price I won't have any problems with paying for upgrades. I hope that this helps.

I have had the same email addy for about 15 years and receive a pretty fair amount of SPAM. My license was free this year and I don't know if I would have bought it at the time as I was pretty much fed up with the solutions that I had tried. If the program continues to perform as well as it has, I'll gladly remain a customer and pay for the upgrades. I like MWPs reporting capability through Knujon and I know that spammers don't like to be reported, so it makes me happy to make them unhappy : ) .

Robert Bull I gave up on Bayesian "solutions" :( I had a license for Mailwasher a few years ago, and found it not only rated large amounts of legitimate Yahoo! Groups messages spam, but it kept doing on each run. I leave quite a lot of mail on the server. Mailwasher didn't check just the new mail, but went back to the start each time and had to be told yet again that the same mail was ham not spam. Then it started deleting messages off its own bat, for no reason I ever discovered, so I abandoned it and went to Magic Mail Monitor (MMM), a freeware filter-based system, backed up by AntiSpamSniper in TheBat!, my e-mail client. That system works quite well. I also tried the freeware G-Lock SpamCombat, which did the same sort of false positives with Yahoo! Groups. Writing new filters into MMM is tedious, but not as tedious as training a Bayesian system. Bah, humbug to Bayesian. I hope and expect they've improved Mailwasher, but no, thanks, especially noting Dr.Teeth's comments on UK pricing.
May 20 2012 at 8:57am Copy Link
MC @ Robert Bull

Totally agree on the process of creating filters....extremely tedious and I'm not doing it. I focused on adding BL servers to the query list in the Spam ToolsOrigin of SPAM module and have 8 of them installed. The Barracuda Networks RBL gets most of the matches and I rarely see false positives. I'm assuming that the program queries those servers first before it performs it's own analysis?
Either way, it's working very well and I'm getting free access to the same BL that corporations pay good money for by purchasing their firewall appliances or hosted services. I only needed to register with BRBL and give them the IP address (mine) of the mail server making the queries then plug the address into MWP.
Sorry to hear about the UK pricing, I guess that could be a show stopper.

Tom Chatterton Bouncing back spam to the spammers is a complete waste of time. Spammers quit using real email addresses ages ago - they use infected computers to spam and the emails are fake or hijacked. However that option would be great to bounce back those idiotic "forwards" that so many people think that I'd be interested in. And then there's a certain brother-in-law who keeps sending me junk about how we need to be getting ready for 2012 - and his tea-bagger malarkey about Obama. Mailwasher just became much more attractive just for its bouncing ability. Thanks!

Nick Bolton Agreed Tom, since spammers almost always forge the return address, bouncing spam is a waste of time and can annoy ISP's. But if you want to bounce back emails to legit people you don't like so they think you no longer exist, then it's perfect.

Tom Chatterton Nick - the bouncing ability sold me - so I bought a copy and I found out that Mailwasher works really well for anti-spam abilities as well. It's easy to set up and uncomplicated. I like that. Thanks!
