|How To Stop Unwanted Emails
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
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.
