Internet / Email Software

An email client, email reader or more formally mail user agent (MUA) is a computer program used to access and manage a user's email. A web application that provides message management, composition, and reception functions is sometimes also considered an email client, but more commonly referred to as webmail.

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.

2. Manually setting up an email account.

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.


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.

In this Experts Exchange video Micro Tutorial, I'm going to show how small business owners who use Google Apps can save money by setting up what is called a catch-all email address in their Gmail accounts. By using the catch-all feature, small business owners can support popular inbound email addresses, such as,,, etc., without having to pay the Google Apps fee for those "users". If the volume of such emails in your small business is reasonable, then all of them can be directed to another Gmail account on your domain. In the best case scenario, a one-person company can do fine with just a single Google Account user, saving the small business owner hundreds of dollars per year.

1. Sign into your Google Admin Console

Visit this link:

Choose your Google Account and sign in with your password.


2. Bring up the Apps Settings

Click Apps.


3. Bring up the Google Apps Settings

Click Google Apps.


4. Bring up the Gmail Settings

Click Gmail.


5. Bring up the Gmail User Settings

Click User settings.


6. Enter the catch-all address

Scroll down until you find a section in the Gmail User Settings called Routing.

Enter the address of a real Gmail user in your account. This is where messages sent to unknown user accounts will be delivered.


7. Save the change to the catch-all setting

Click SAVE.

That's it! I hope you just saved yourself some money in Google Apps fees. Better in your pocket than Google's!

The downside of this approach is that any email sent to the domain, legitimate or not will be routed to the one user, which greatly increases the chances of spam and phishing attacks getting through.  It also provides a "legitimate" return address for spammers that use spoofing.

Other options are:
Setup specific nicknames for the user, such as info@, sales@, service@, help@ etc. This can be done from the User admin section, as noted in the video, by adding alias addresses.
Use the Groups feature to setup a "distribution list" for info@, sales@, etc to forward to the user

The advantage of these options is that you can also configure to user so that he/she can reply using the nickname/group name.  So, the user can reply as info@, sales@ etc OR their personal address.

Hi Allen,
Yes, those are downsides of the approach, as stated in Google's caveat shown in Step #6 above and why I took the time to read the caveat in full during the video. Thanks very much for providing your thoughts on other options — those are interesting ideas! I've used aliases/nicknames and groups/distribution lists with other email providers/client software, but not with Gmail. I'll check it out — appreciate the tip! Regards, Joe
