Mailwasher Pro 7.8.0
I recently reinstalled Mailwasher Pro after upgrading my computer. I've looked for the answer to this in the Help forum but not getting what I need to know. When I open Mailwasher, most all the spam is marked correctly, but it used to go directly to the recycle bin and not show up in the in box. Does anyone have an answer for this?

I'm still using 6.5.x as I was unhappy with some changes they made in 7.x so there may be some differences.
There's more than one type of spam flagging and each has it's own settings. Check your Options for each of these you are using and look at the action. It can be set to act automatically or when you process the mail - the latter is the default.Graham Smith

Instead, route the spam directly to a Spam folder, which you can scan or empty weekly or monthly.

However, it had limitations in how it's used, so may not fit your setup--it was worth my while to change my email setup back then so I could use it.
This decade, none of these tools are necessary. Gmail and Outlook.com do an outstanding job of filtering spam, to the extent that I haven't had a false positive in years. Both enable you to collect all your other email accounts thru them if you want, and both are very efficient to use with a good desktop client like Outlook.Lugh.
