It is a good program. I loved it when I was using it, but to me it is SERIOUSLY flawed. You buy it and it expires. Every year you have to pay them to continue using it. So it is not buy to own but a yearly subscription. I used my own filters and not their "online databases" but still I cannot use the program I purchased. I was a loyal user since v6, but I won't support programs that expire. At the time I bought the 20xx versions they didn't mention this little nugget of info. When I complained about the extortion, they offered me another year but I didn't accept it. You can stop supporting a program, you can make it so you can't get updates, but if you make it stop working even though it was installed and working, your program is garbage.

So just be warned. It is NOT shareware or anything of the type as listed on this page. It is a trial software that is subscribed to with a yearly fee attached. It's not even as nice as the antivirus software, most of those expire but you can keep using them but not updating the definitions, this program won't even load once expired. I guess they didn't like the fact that you could write your own filters and not use their "online databases" and still have the program work quite effectively, so to keep leaching money out of you they just expired the program so you can't use it. I highly recommend you do NOT buy software that works this way.

Where's the changelog? Not here. Not on the website. Install an unknown over my current version? No way. 5 stars for version 6.3

"this was a unexpected update in the weekend, just a few minor changes, so not worth updating if all is going OK with you there"

I've been using this for years and haven't had an issue since 5.0 or so. It's the perfect solution not only for dealing with spam but also filtering and clearing other unwanted or unnecessary email without having to download it from the server. Over time, you'll find lots of other neat little personal uses for it. I can't live without it now.

Have to say I've been using this program for years also and it works great...
I love being able to delete spam off the mail server w/o ever having to actually download it.

It appears 'Undesired Username' has never used the programme. If the programme is used you can easily find options never to show spam!

For those that have used it, including myself since its very early days - it the probably the best way to get rid of spam, and never download it. No plugin's, thus not tied to a specific email client.

I've always thought the whole MailWasher approach was senseless. Rather than use a spam filter that gets obvious spam messages out of your face, where you can look at them at your convenience (or never), it forces you to always have to look at spam, and take an extra step just to get all of your email.

The best function of this app, is the ability to send bounce back messages to the spam email address. I know most are spoofed, but still a nice feature.

Very nice improvement. Seems to work well. Nice that all options are avail from one panel.

Wow, it's been over a year since the last update. The UI got redone quite a bit. Some new features although not an insane amount of changes. A free upgrade for previous v5 users.

Five stars from me for always doing what it is supposed to do and saving my inbox from an ungodly amount of spam and other unwanted email.

Still a pretty good app, however thier support tends to be lacking i.e. when you submit a bug it appears to go on their backburner. There have been 2 releases and they have not fixed the acknowledged bug. The app has tripled in size over the past years, but I think under 4 megs is reasonable.
It was a lot better when Nick B was doing it himself!
Still the app works, and does what it is susposed to do.

I love this little program. Being part of the community that identifies spammers and reports them gives me a great feeling. I have used this program for over 3 years now. Changelog has been posted
