Hi I used to use Mailwasher to filter spam from my outlook express but it stopped working and caused some problems so I uninstalled it. Can anyone recommend any other good, free spam filters for outlook express? Thanks in advance.
ok i tried that eprompter and i have no idea if i set it up correctly as when it asks you for an email address then password, i've no idea whether its my email address password or a new password for eprompter. Also can it handle 5 email accounts? IF anyone knows any other spam filters, maybe there's one out there that integrates into outlook express instead of popping up separately?
long ago, i had tried out both in my office and was much more impressed with the "Mail Washer" (free edition) click here than the freeware "ePrompter", which was rather unstable and in my opinion, over-rated by some website reviewers at that time.
by the way, i like the unwanted-mail 'bounce back' feature of "Mail Washer" although some people felt it is not really useful. i am not sure if this is true or not, and whether this is the reason why its few competitors have not bothered to include this feature in their products.
I tried the free version of Mailwasher some while ago and found it useful so I sent a couple of quid to the author. When the Pro version was launched I was offered a free upgrade and downloaded it.
At the start there were problems but prompt upgrades brought stability and recently a new version has been launched with the ability to subscribe separately to a spam database at Firetrust for about £3 for the first year.
I have to say that I am finding this terrific and although I recognise that there were stability problems some while ago I can now deal with the ever increasing volume of spam in no time at all
