    email announcer

    I have been using a program called "Mailwasher" for a while but would like to find an alternative. Mailwasher is a program that checks what email you have from all email addresses and I find it good to check email without the need to open each email client - until they went to a yearly based fee system. I had already paid for the program and now a yearly "subscription" fee seems a bit much.

    So, does anyone have any ideas if there is a substitute that checks POP and Imap systems?

    I use Mailwasher rarely now but I have the old free version that allowed unlimited accounts.
    I remember when they went to a paid version but I wasn't that interested, besides I had the free version..

    I believe what you are looking for is a mail client. Windows Live Mail (WLM) is one such mail client that I use very effectively. I can check web based email, pop based email, etc from one mail client. Check it out.

    Ted, thank you but what I am looking for is similar to Mailwasher rather than a "client". With Mailwasher one does not have to download the email to see or delete them while a "client", as I understand it, is like Outlook, Thunderbird, or any email programs where you need to download the complete email to view it.

    Why not use a free ISP such as Hotmail or Gmail? Both of these have excellent spam filters and you can use the web interface to review email before using a mail client to download the mail.

    Hi Joe, the reason I don't use them is that I have to associate one with the other. This means that the information found in my pop or imap accounts would have to be shared, for an example, with the likes of Google's data mining. Mailwasher, and similar programs, simply reads the email that exists on several independent servers and does not share or download the email, or use other servers to do this. And, the program resides on my computer. I would like to find a similar program to Mailwasher, but not at a yearly fee. Thanks for the reply.

    You can try to use the last free version of Mailwasher - see last free mailwasher search results.

    That would work, but it's limited to one email account. I have about eight email accounts.

    Sorry, I can't help. I don't use Mailwasher or anything like it. The spam filters in Outlook work well enough for me.

    Joe, thanks for the replies. It isn't so much as I am looking for spam filtering, but rather just to check out the email without the need to open Outlook.

    I have Outlook running all the time so I never worry about checking email with another tool.

    The best I can recommend is a Bing or Google search. Maybe someone else can jump in.
