AntiSpam

Various techniques are used to prevent email spam (unsolicited bulk email). No technique is a complete solution to the spam problem, and each has trade-offs between incorrectly rejecting legitimate email (false positives) vs. not rejecting all spam (false negatives) - and the associated costs in time and effort. Anti-spam techniques can be broken into four broad categories: those that require actions by individuals, those that can be automated by email administrators, those that can be automated by email senders and those employed by researchers and law enforcement officials.

This is Part-2 of Learning to use the Power of Mailwasher Pro so if you haven't watched Part-1 yet, I urge you to do so before watching this video. Click this link to watch Part-1.

Ok, that out of the way, what we're going to cover here is how to setup additional Email accounts in Mailwasher, along with how to classify what "you" consider to be spam and what you don't. Also, we'll be looking at how we can recover deleted emails, even if you've cleared your Deleted Items folder in Outlook and more.

Remember the old adage of One Man's Rubbish is another Man's Treasure? Well, that's why I dislike Online Spam Filtering services and prefer tools like Mailwasher because it gives me total control - a control that you should have too and in doing so, never having to lose a genuine email again.

Learn to use the POWER of Mailwasher Pro - Part 1
If you, like me, have a dislike for using Online Subscription anti-spam services, then this video series is for you. I have an inherent dislike of leaving decisions such as what is and what isn't spamming to other people or services for me and insist on being able to make those decisions for myself.

Why?

Because as the old adage goes, one man's trash is another man's treasure. This video series is about a tool that I've been using for over 15 years now and as a result, my Outlook inbox has been 99.99% free of spam for many, many years. Yours can be too and it's easier than you may think!

This Video Tutorial shows how to obtain and install a tool called Mailwasher Pro which in this authors opinion, is one of the best Anti-Spam utilities available on the market. As mentioned previously, I've been using Mailwasher for over 15 years now and can honestly say that my Outlook Inbox is 99.9% free of Spam.

This is a multi-part series that goes into not just installation and use but shows you advanced configuration options to train Mailwasher Pro to know exactly what YOU consider to be spam, rather than rely on online services who make those decisions for you.

For those of you that prefer to read articles rather than watch videos, please check out the articles I've written on this topic and published on experts exchange at the following links:
