On the contrary, the whole point of Mailwasher is to help you filter out spam before downloading mail to your PC!

As Jackcoms said, Mailwasher filters out spam, I use the paid for Pro version and wouldn't be without it, the free version is also very good, it just has a few less features.

incredibly small free notifier, powerful rule set to filter spam - not as easy to set up as mailwasher but it's 100kb compared to 4mb

Mozilla's Thunderbird posts a small envelope in the Notification Tray and also a musical note to indicate new e-mail(s).
