Like most people, I hate spam! - Which is why I love Mailwasher Pro!  I highly recommend it and no, that's not my affiliate link. Though I do have one :)

I've yet to try another anti-spam solution that gives me as much control over my mail and that works as well as this software does in keeping spam out of my Inbox, while never affecting the mail I want to keep.

Here's an example screen grab I just took to show why I'm so fond of it.

Mailwasher Pro Partial Screen Grab
Every action in this screen shot was pre-marked automatically for me without my needing to do a thing. I have the option to over-ride anything with a quick mouse click and the program will remember my preferences for the next time it checks.  I can also safely preview any email in that list using plain Text or HTML format and even shoot off a quick Reply or Forward if I want to, without needing to bring it into Outlook.

When I want to bring in my email, I just hit the big "Wash Mail" button and it deletes all the garbage from my mail server's host, opens (or maximizes) Outlook and I click send/receive in there to bring in only the good stuff that I want to keep.  Spam hasn't made its way into my Outlook for years now.  I also have it installed on both my IPhone and IPad.

When I do want to adjust my additional "self created" filters, the provided filter creation tool is great so the process only takes seconds to do.  If you hate spam as much as I …

Yep.. That's a risk with many web based (or even managed) solutions.  You're always at the mercy of whoever runs the service.

I'm a bit of a control freak at heart, so Mailwasher suits me down to the ground.  Having used it for so long, it's learning history rarely (if ever) gets it wrong for me these days.

Thanks for sharing your experience!

Why PSTs Are Bad
Lately I have run across a few situations where a user was recommended to use a PST file with Outlook to help manage the size of their mailbox. Here's a link that talks about why this could be a bad idea.
http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-reasons-to-avoid-using-pst-files/

Best solution of course is actually to spend time managing emails and get rid of unneeded items. If a person is using Exchange, they also should find out if an archive has been set up.

Microsoft June 2017 Patchday:

KB3203467 Outlook 2010 security hotfix seems to break Outlook attachments when e-mail arrives in Rich Text format.
Weird error appears referring to Outlook should be installed.

Uninstalling the hotfix solves the error.

New to this sharing updates thing, so I have no idea who views these? I have created some Outlook troubleshooting training videos for technicians. I'm considering putting them up here on EE for techs to purchase. When you upload courses, it takes a lot of time. I have 2 other courses up and it was a bit of work. If you read this and think it's of value, please like this post or comment "yes" so I can get a feel for the interest. Thanks!
