Mailwasher Pro help required

  wulliec 12:36 06 May 2004

I currently have this installed to protect me from spam, but due to some unknown reason it doesnt open my mail program once mail has been checked.

I currently run Windows 2000 using Outlook Express ver 6

Mailwasher is looking for a default email client but I have this already is there any way i can point mailwasher pro to this as my default although internet properties states outlook express is my default

Cheers in advance

tools/accounts/properties and config from there.

When Mailwasher is open, have you gone to Tools - Accounts and set up your account via the ADD ?

  wulliec 12:44 06 May 2004

there is no option in that location for setting up email program , just email accounts

still lost in space :)

it is not an auto function you either need to click on mail program at the top next to tools or go to it manually, it has never launched my mail prog after searching.

The mail programme opens after processing the mail. As I understand it Mailwasher D/L the mail, you select those to be deleted then click Process.
The mail programme then opens to allow you to D/L the 'good' mail to the programme.
Tools > options > General check the 'Launch email application after processing' box

not so with mine.

beeuuem is correct.

Mailwasher v 2.0.4

beeuuem - "understand it Mailwasher D/L the mail" the mail - isn't downloaded at this stage, it remains on the server so you don't d/l nasties, spam etc.

It d/loads after 'Process'.

wulliec have you tried Tools>Options>General> under Options tick Launch email app, and in Specify put Outlook Exprees.
