Not really sure what you mean - "how to install a mailwasher programme"?

Download the executable from the mailwasher site click here and then follow the instruction in the installation wizard.

In any event, you should never bounce e-mail back. Apart from the fact that it just clogs up the internet with yet more spam messages, it also lets the spammers know that your e-mail address is active.

I believe that these applications only work with Outlook Express or Office Outlook and require the setting up of an account using the password issued by your ISP. If this is the case and you can't locate this P/Word then you may have to visit the customer or help zone of your service provider for advice etc.

Yes, Mailwasher only works with an e-mail client as opposed to web mail. But there is absolutely no need to use a password or seek anything from your ISP.

It works by allowing you to see the mail waiting on your ISP's mail server before you download it to your PC. You can set up filters and rules to filter out the garbage at source.

I have used Mailwasher for quite some time now and it not only works with the ISP but also with Hotmail if you programme it to do so.

Super freebie! Add it to the list.

I've just downloaded the free mailwasher program but obviously missed the password screen. Now I cannot access the program because I've not created a password. Can anyone help me to get to the right screen please.

Thanks
