MailWasher Pro description
Helps you get rid of spam, viruses and unwanted e-mail with this e-mail preview program
MailWasher Pro is an application that was created to let users regain control of their e-mail inbox.
The overwhelming amount of spam on the Internet is set to increase exponentially over the next few years, with users already facing serious security threats, families being exposed to objectionable content and product scams bombarding inboxes worldwide.
MailWasher Pro protects users from these threats and allows safe, secure management of their e-mail.
Previewing messages on their mail server, MailWasher Pro lets users delete any harmful content before it reaches their mail program and wreaks havoc on their computer.
Created for home users who deem their online privacy and security as paramount, MailWasher Pro has already become a highly regarded e-mail security solution.
How does MailWasher Pro work?
MailWasher Pro works directly with your email server, exactly like your email program does. But there is one important difference; you can tell MailWasher Pro to delete a message at the server, without downloading it - or you can bounce an email back to the sender so that it looks as though your address is not valid.
MailWasher Pro retrieves information about all the email on the server. With that information (some of which is also processed by MailWasher Pro) you can decide what to do with each individual email - download, delete, report or bounce it back.
If you check your accounts with MailWasher Pro first, you can delete or bounce the email you do not want. Then, when you use your email program, it downloads only the remaining emails, those that you want to read.
MailWasher Pro can be thought of as a "first line of defense" which can weed out junk, large wasteful attachments, and potentially harmful viruses.
