Long-time subscriber Chet Norris wrote with a question about Mailwasher Pro, which I use to filter spam while it’s still at the mailserver.
First congratulations on 7 years publishing. looking forward to many more; i’ve been a subscriber for almost that long i’m sure.
I have a question about Mailwasher Pro 2012 and believe me i tried their faq’s etc and their questions and they have no answer for me and they won’t let me email them until i create an account. I used to be a Mailwasher user years ago until they did away with the free version..but here’s my question,,hopefully u can help me
I have 3 active email accounts
1. one from sbcglobal.net
2. one from mail.com
3. one from gmail
those 3 all forward mail to my Thunderbird account
can Mailwasher deal with that or would i be limited to one email address?
thanks for any help you can throw my way.
I wrote back to Chet to tell him that, sure, it can handle multiple inbound accounts.
I have 5 email accounts set up for regular checking by Mailwasher Pro — two at cox.net, and three at my regular mailserver at my web host.
To set it up, you just go into settings, click Add Email Account, and set them up.
Each account can be set as to whether or not it should be checked for email when you do a check for new emails, whether that’s one a time-scheduled basis (e.g., every 10 minutes) or if you press the Check Mail button.
Mailwasher Pro also has a pull-down option you can use to have Mailwasher check only one of the individual accounts.
Another interesting feature is that you can even change the order they’re checked. I’m not sure when this would be important, but it could be.
