Installing Mailwasher - Security?

  Border View 11:01 01 May 2003

I'm in the process of installing Mailwasher from the March DVD of PC Advisor. It loaded no problem and I'm now at the stage of setting it up. Its asking for things like POP server address; User name; Password: SMTP server address. I'm a bit unsure about giving out my password for my account or am I being paranoid.

Your comments would be appreciated before I proceed further.

Presumably you're already using an email program like Outlook Express to access your mail and you had to enter your details into that program for it to function so what's the difference?

Just me being paranoid. Took the plunge before you replied and of course it works perfectly.

Thank you for responding though. One of those days.

I'm afraid I've never seen the point of Outlook Express,etc. I only use web-based mail so that I control what is downloaded and when.'Problems' that Mailwasher are supposed to deal with just don't exist.
