What's the point in a spam filter when you've to check the trapped spam for good stuff and delete the crap anyway? I gave up on McAfee spam filtering - are they all the same, these programs?

With mailwasher you don't filter - simply look at what is on the server and you can delete it if it is spam.

That way, only what you want is downloaded to your PC.

Also, mailwasher has a very good system of checking the source of mail against blacklisted servers and will mark for deletion anything that is routed via one of these servers.

Also manual Spam Filters are infinitely better than automated ones. No false alarms, no genuine mail lost in the Spam box, no wasted resources, no need to download the spam and viral ridden messages to your PC. Just delete from the mail server.
