Re: Important notice for MailWasher and GMail accounts

FYI - I just got two MailWasher Newsletter emails about this new gmail policy. Both emails were tagged as spam by my ISP, Cox Communications. I'm not smart enough to know what caused them to be tagged as spam, but I note the default setting for Cox is for tagged emails to be dumped into their spam f...

Re: Feature Request - Auto Bounce

It's been asked for before several times and while it sounds like it would be a nice feature, it's really a bad idea! Bouncing should only be done to bounce an email back to someone you know personally (like an ex-wife) and you know their email address is valid. For everyone else, it would be much b...

Re: Important notice for MailWasher and GMail accounts

Well, it seems to me it would be an automated evaluation process. Sure they had to develop the evaluation code and create a safe and isolated testing environment. But I cannot imagine they need to charge those prices to recoup their investment. FTR, I already had that option unchecked. What are the ...

and to be approved you must have your application audited, costing anywhere between 15000-75000.

Re: Priority in a bounce.

You really should never use bounce unless you know for a fact, it is coming from a valid email address. For example, if you want to bounce emails back to your X wife. Bouncing spam really never works. In fact it makes things worse because the spammer spoofs - forges another email address in the spam...

Re: I get mail with received dates that are in the future

OK sure, the Date: header is easy to forge in emails. But there is no nice way to filter on date in MailWasher, so instead you need to pattern match on the year I thought of this and that's one reason I asked if these were coming from the same domain. While a spammer can easily spoof different doma...

Well, sorry, this is out of my wheelhouse. Hopefully someone else with more insight to this will step in with some advice.

Re: I get mail with received dates that are in the future

I ask again, are they always spam? Or are some legit? Are they from all different domains?

If you send an email to yourself, are the dates correct?

I really have no clue why this might be happening - so I am just throwing out questions in the hope something might trigger a thought.

Re: I get mail with received dates that are in the future

Did you verify your computer's datetime clock is correct? Including timezone? I used to get emails with future dates though typically they were a day or two, not a year. I don't remember which is the default (Sent or Received) but I added whatever was not there to my message grid so I could see when...

Re: does it do anygood to bounce?

Usually no. This is because spammers forge ( spoof ) someone else's email address, or an invalid email address into their spam messages so the bounce either goes back to some innocent person or it gets dumped into a bit bucket somewhere, or the bounce gets bounced back to you again. That bouncing ba...

I won't block you. I can't anyway.

Re: I would purchase but PRO not catching about 10 of the blacklisted ones

So if all these blacklisted ones are going to hit Gmail server first, then MailWasher gets a shot at them, how can MW do anything about stopping these persistent bad emails from hitting our Inbox and Spam? Do you use a local email client? That is, an email program that runs on your computer like Ou...

Re: I would purchase but PRO not catching about 10 of the blacklisted ones

I can answer some of those. Gmail has its own spam blocking. So any emails that match their patterns are automatically put in the Gmail spam folder. Remember, that is done BEFORE MailWasher (MW) ever sees the email. So MW could not tag it even if it matched the MW filters. In fact, ALL emails sent t...

Re: I would purchase but PRO not catching about 10 of the blacklisted ones

You would probably need to give an example of what you are trying to blacklist, and how. It can be tricky but not necessarily MailWasher's fault. Perhaps a filter would work better for you. I generally don't recommend the use of Blacklisting except for specific email addresses you know to be valid -...
