Have you noticed that email spam is getting beyond a joke? Many countries have instituted anti-spam legislation but judging by the state of my inbox every morning it’s not doing much good, and I know I’m not alone.
Have you actually calculated how much time spam email costs you every week to download, sort and delete? 15 minutes a day is over an hour per week of lost productivity…
Recently I came accross and Anti-spam program called MailWasher Pro that is already saving me hours every week.
Why I like MailWasher
Many anti-spam solutions that I’ve seen suffer from one or more of these problems:
- They’re too agressive – they eat up legitimate emails
- They’re not agressive enough – they allow tonnes of dodgy emails through
- They can be circumvented and rendered useless by inventive spammers
MailWasher overcomes each of these problems. Here’s a quick summary of how it works:
Sorting Emails and Nuking Spam is Fast!
Because you only see a preview of incoming emails without downloading the whole message, MailWasher is lightning fast – no more waiting for dozens or hundreds of rubbish emails to clog up your inbox before you get a chance to delete them.
Reduced security risk
Because you don’t actually download emails to your computer until they have been sorted by MailWasher, malicious emails with viruses attached never even reach your computer.
MailWasher is a fast learner
When I first purchased Mailwasher Pro after previewing the Free Version, I found that for the first week or so I had to keep an eye on the automated sorting function to ensure that mails were sorted correctly.
But ever since flagging most of my “friendly” email addresses and blacklisting others, the learning filter has taken over and the program functions brilliantly. Previewing and sorting 100 emails now takes less than 1 minute.
MailWasher Versions and Prices
Even if spam email is costing you only 15 minutes a day, that’s 50 hours you’re sacrificing every year based on a working year of 200 days. Then multiply that by how much your time is worth to you (your hourly rate)…
Convinced yet? 😉
So, how much does this little baby cost? Well, there are two versions, the Free Version and the Pro Version. Here’s how the versions compare.
Why I use and recommend the Pro Version
- MailWasher Pro allows multiple email accounts
- It has a built-in “learning filter” which increases speed and accuracy.
- It integrates with the First Alert global spam database which allows automatic screening and flagging of 95% of spam email
- It is an absolute no-brainer at only USD $37.
So if you want to free your inbox of clutter and claim back countless hours every year, grab MailWasher!
