MailWasher Mobile helps stop spam and other unwanted email. MailWasher enables you to preview all your email and delete it before it reaches your email program. Comprehensive anti spam filters are used, along with white lists and blacklists.
MailWasher previews your email at the server, so you can view, mark for delete, add to blacklist or friends list. Then press the 'Wash' button to remove the unwanted emails.
MailWasher works fast and is quick and easy to use.
Common swiping actions are used:
- Pull down to refresh/check for new messages
- Swipe an email across to add to or remove from friends list/blacklist
- Click on an email to preview it fully.
MailWasher previews your email in plain text for security.
POP3 and IMAP email accounts are supported.
The Account Setup Wizard helps with the setup, or you can download the Desktop version of MailWasher Pro and sync your accounts and blacklist/friendslist entries. Get the desktop version here: http://cdn.firetrust.com/downloads/mailwasher_pro/7/mailwasher_pro_setup_7_4_1_21112014.exe
Everything is new - this is a complete rewrite, so there's a new user interface for starters. Now includes IMAP email account support and you can add all your email accounts.
NOTE: Your old username/password login for version 1.4 will no longer work, you will need to create a new 'Firetrust login' using an email address and password, and then re-add your email accounts.
Ratings and Reviews
Pretty Darn Good App
I've been using this app for about 7 months now, on my iPhone, iPad & desktop PC, and am quite pleased with it. Sure, it's got a few bugs, but after using several different solutions for the past years this is hands-down the best I've found so far.
The best part about this app is that it stops spam at the server, before it even gets to your devices. You preview your messages in the app, tag the spam, blacklist entire domains, and when you're ready you open your mail program to download the remaing good messages.
With a couple of business e-mail accounts advertised on the web I get upwards of 500 messages per day; of which about 40-50 are valid. To prevent me from having to swipe tag messages all day long, I leave my desktop on at the office with this app running and filtering messages, so the last check and filer always has occurred during the past 15 minutes.
Works best when you configure filters under settings for auto-delete blacklisted domains, and certain high-volume spam terms: such as "Dr. Oz." "Diet"etc.
- Phone/iPad app doesn't refreash showing all the pending messages; you have to refresh-wash-refresh-wash several times.
Works for Me
I cannot say enough about this App. I had an email account that would receive from at least 120 to 150 spam messages a day. I stopped checking it because the spam emails were so overwhelming. In just a few months I had over 8,000 unread messages in that account. In finally cleaning it out, I saw in the last two months, I was being sent two emails in a row from the same spam sender. Researched over the last year, and finally found and downloaded the Mail Washer on my phone. In just two weeks, I am receiving about 30 emails per day, and I am able to "wash" those before they go to my server. I pray nothing changes and some update doesn't make this inoperable, because it's been a game-changer for me.
Finally! A solution for cell phone spam
I set this up in conjunction with the desktop app on my PC, which made it very easy to add in all my email accounts. Then I pressed "sync" and now my cell phone and my PC scan for spam before I open my email. What's so great about this is that it "learns" what you consider to be spam and makes guesses about new emails. If it's wrong, it's easy to switch something from "spam" to "good" and after that, it will be handled automatically. I've been using this for a month now, and it takes just a few seconds to mark anything new and then go to a spam-free cell phone & PC email box. Well worth the annual subscription fee for the syncing feature.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
