Eh? Surely the post above has described the function. Mailwasher
first applies the white list (you add names to this list or write
rules). Then it applies the blacklist (you add names to this or
rules). Optionally it can use external blacklist databases.
Now you have a bad set of emails in a list before you, with from,
subject , to etc. You can untick or tick ones. You can preview ones.
You then tick process and mailwasher bounces or deletes the email off
the server. This is its primary advantage, you don't download the
crap unlike most email program filtering. Of course if you are on
broadband perhaps you don't care.
