Mailwasher problem

  rômanab 11:10 05 Nov 2006

I have been using Mailwasher (currently v 2.0.28) succesfully for the past few years and it has always performed faultlessly.

Now every time I try to use it I am informed that I have no internet connection and that Mailwasher is unable to create one even though I am connected to the net.

No other program is affected.

Must add that I have tried uninstalling/re-installing to no avail, even removing all reg entries.

Any ideas anyone?

Many thanks

Might be Firewall or cookie problem.

Thanks Miros, I will have a look at that if I can't get Mailwasher working again.

buteman, nothing has changed regarding firewall/cookie settings so I am stumped :o(

Hmmm, just opened Mailwasher again and was prompted for the passwords for my two accounts, entered them and it worked.

Closed and opened it again and it's back to the same 'can't find connection' problem?????

As far as I know there is only one ePrompter program as in my above link, once downloaded it will be automatically updated to latest version.
Why all those other links is beyond me, perhaps buteman you could explain, why complicate something so simple?

I`ve had this problem before too. Most ISP`s these days close the Broadband connection after a period of inactivity and the simple act of refreshing a web page in your browser opens it again theeby re-establishing a connection. Mailwasher simply looks for a connection and unless you open your browser first it can`t find one.

Therefore always open Internet Explorer (or another browser) and then Mailwasher will work every time. Note however that even Mailwasher sometimes fails to log on to your ISP`s mail servers, hence the prompt for passwords. Not Mailwasher`s fault I hasten to add.
