Ok look, its pretty obvious you're not going to take the word of a few
people who've used it and like it, and its very .... make that....
extremely obvious that you have not even tried it once or you'd know
that it shows EVERYTHING that's on the mail server, not in your
personal in-box, then gives you options to set up filters, determine
what is to be blacklisted, bounced, etc.....it LEARNS but it never
does anything automatic....rather it gives you the options of what to
do while maintaining your blacklist. There is no possibility of
accidental deletion of email you wanted. At the same time, anything
you blacklisted, bounced, deleted before...is pre-tagged for you, but
won't ba acted upon until you tell it to. The nice thing is it does
this at the server, not your inbox, so after processing, you launch
your regular email app and it only retrieves what's been left on the
server after Mailwasher.
Its simple. For crying out loud download the thing, try it one time,
THEN talk about what it does or doesn't do, and frankly, I don't see
where anyone gets off saying that if a website doesn't explain in
detail how their software implements it must not be very good. I
thought the website explained just fine.
Third grade coloring book simple...... it WORKS and it works GREAT.
Try it before you decry it.
