How To Stop Unwanted Emails!

Written By: Copyrights 2004 by Doyle Beitz

This is down to earth, no nonsense, just the facts type of information. What are the benefits that you gain by reading my article. Anyone using Microsoft Outlook or Outlook express runs the risk of infection if they use the preview pane which most people do.

Virtually anyone with up to date anti virus protection software found the virus relatively easy to stop before the virus infected their system, however dealing with a virus is highly inconvenient and a waste of time.

Every time you get an infected email you will have to stop and clean it up. I finally got tired and decided to look for a program that would let me check my email before I even downloaded it through my regular email program, Outlook express. I was in search of an email checker program that I could use to stop viruses and emails before they got downloaded to my computer. I choose the MailWasher Pro as I have multiple email accounts to check.

So I went to my favorite search engine to look for a free program that would let me preview my email on my mail server without downloading the actual email message.

After doing my research I discovered a program called MailWasher Pro they have a free program, which allows you to check the headers in your email inbox before downloading to your computer.

You can see who sent the email, the subject line (which is a spam tip off), the size of the email with any attachments, and date.

Now this solution won’t apply in every situation (no solution can guarantee this) but it helped me out this time.

Yet, I soon noticed that there was an added benefit ! I was able to eliminate the majority of spam emails that was in my inbox. I just clicked blacklisting most of the offending emails without downloading the email. This has been quite a time saver!

You should update your anti virus protection weekly and check you email before you download it to your computer. You must make it your responsibility to protect your own computer, data, and personal information against loss, by backing up your files.

MailWasher Pro analyses each email as it arrives and warns you if it is suspected junk mail or a virus, at which point you can choose to blacklist it, that it will get bounced back to the sender, so they will delete it from their mailing list as a inactive email address.

You can use the Free MailWasher Pro download this is a 30 day trail version you will need the pro version if you have multiple email accounts, however you can use MailWasher Free here which is good for one email account.

In Closing you will need to have all this information to run your own legitimate home based small business. I recommend you do your research well, as you don’t want to find yourself with the wrong email program.
