MailWasher Free is an anti spam software, the easiest way to check and manage your e-mails before you download them.
MailWasher Free works directly with your email server, exactly like your email program does. But there is one important difference; you can tell MailWasher Free 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 Free retrieves information about all the email on the server. With that information (some of which is also processed by MailWasher Free) you can decide what to do with each individual email - download, delete or bounce it back.
If you check your accounts with MailWasher Free 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 Free can be thought of as a first line of defense which can weed out junk, large wasteful attachments, and potentially harmful viruses.
