I practically never receive spam, even on the disposable email adresses I setup for low-security accounts. I only received a few lately, because a relative got his mail hacked. Even then, my ISP’s spam filter blocked out most of it and I never got to see it.
I’m afraid this type of program may have outlived its usefulness in its present form, given a) the efficiency of anti-spam filters now used by mail providers, b) the fact that Mail Washer in not integrated in the mail client according to the reviews here, and therefore the need to switch from one program to the other in order to sort out your mail c) the subscription pricing model and high yearly price.Dec 29, 2017 at 7:17 am #9904440
I’ve used it regularly for years. I think it’s still the best way to quickly separate spam and legit messages in email accounts that get a large volume of both types.
But I don’t think the updates over the years have made the program any better, and the new subscription model is too expensive.Dec 29, 2017 at 7:53 am #9904691
Not worth using for one year and then you are locked into a subscription based model in perpetuity. In effect, a one year trial.Dec 29, 2017 at 11:05 am #9905778
For security reasons, i.e.the fact that mail providers like Google and Outlook read your email and log them, it is a good reason not to use them except for non sensitive messaging. Like this.
I am still using version 6.1 and see no reason to upgrade. With multiple email addresses for business – support@, contact@, investor@, sales@, etc@. this does a great job.
If you don’t care who reads your email or if you just use Google or Outlook then it’s OK not to understand the need for having a decent spam filter locally. But for business people with multiple accounts for say, family and friends, for social, for business and for special activities like banking and dating then this is a great tool, but it takes some work to set up.
What makes it different than free mail boxes, other than they read your mail and you have no privacy, is they often filter out important email and tag it as spam. Gone. Mailwasher does not, it gives you options to delete or flag as suspicious so you can then scan all current suspicious email and pull out the good from the spam without ever downloading it to your computer. Thus you get to approve an important email, or not before it gets downloaded.
So far this year I have received in excess of 362,000 emails using mailwasher server edition. (Yes that is correct 362 thousand.)
On my local computer running Mailwasher 6.1 forwarded 1% or about 3500 to me for filtering. Local Mailwasher filtered 80%. It would be higher but I tend to keep marginal emails like events and notices and certain news related emails. Otherwise it would be closer to 95% filter.
Mailwasher is not difficult to learn, it just takes time to learn.
Oh and the support on paid versions is excellent! Fast accurate and personal, not some call center with minimal understanding.
Recommended tool.Dec 29, 2017 at 11:54 am #9906001

Installation and registration went well. However, when it scanned my computer, it couldn’t find an e-mail client….even I have 2 of them. A bit dissapointing, especially when it’s an expensive program given for free these daysDec 30, 2017 at 8:44 am #9912652
J’ai utilisé la version gratuite depuis de nombreuses années pour mon compte principal (le plus spammé…).
Cet outil est très utile pour éviter de perdre beaucoup de temps dans la liste de lecture de spams, pour finalement garder 5 pour cent d’entre eux! Et cela fonctionne comme un charme.
Je remercie beaucoup sharewareonsale pour nous donner l’occasion d’obtenir la version complète.Dec 30, 2017 at 8:51 am #9912721
Hum ! sorry : I apologize for my bad english ^^
I used the free version since many years for my principal account (the most spammed…).
This tool is very useful to avoid losing many time in reading list of spams, for finally keep 5 per cent of them ! And it works like a charm.
I thank a lot sharewareonsale for give us opportunity to get the full version.Dec 30, 2017 at 8:46 pm #9915514
Used this for 7 months, excellent program & Support. I like it, because Of Social Media,
I get a lot of Emails to my IncrediMail client. When you delete all these Emails, it will
delete my Web Mail (TW), at the same time. A real time savior. Has great other features.Dec 31, 2017 at 7:33 am #9919452
I’M UNABLE TO DOWNLOAD AND RUN THE PROGRAM. I RECEIVE A MESSAGE THAT THE INSTALLATION FILE DID NOT PROPERLY INSTALL. I’VE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES AND GET THE SAME MESSAGE. CAN YOU HELP?
