Which email programs does MailWasher work with?

How does MailWasher work?
MailWasher logs in to your email accounts at your internet provider and downloads a copy of the email allowing you to read all your email on the server. Your email actually stays on the server at your internet provider, but MailWasher lets you inspect and interact with your email.
MailWasher uses its built in spam tools to best determine what is spam and what is good email. You'll get great results if you initially train MailWasher to learn which of your email is good and which is spam.
You can easily mark email for deletion, report spam to authorities, bounce spam back to senders and train MailWasher to better recognize spam and good email. Then, simply pressing the 'Wash Mail' button will remove spam and unwanted email from the server so you can download the remaining good email to your email program.
Using MailWasher is easy, but you should always check your email with MailWasher first, because once it's been downloaded to your email program, MailWasher can't interact with it.
How can I train MailWasher?
MailWasher comes built in with great spam tools which lets you customize how spam and good email is handled, but you'll get fantastic results when you train Mailwasher.
