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...

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

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.

Not sure what to say why you can't get it going. Did you see this: https://www.firetrust.com/products/mail ... tart-guide

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 -...

Re: I have 1500 entries to put into my blacklist...

How old are some of those entries? Since it is common for bad guys to use an email address for just a short period of time (because they get on the big blacklisting lists) I suspect most in your list are doing nothing. Personally, I feel the blacklist is only good to block people you personally know...

Re: Can't launch MWP from system tray

It should be noted that some don't even say, "all fixed" but instead never reply after they fix their issues.
Very true and that is even more frustrating.

Thanks for coming back and posting your solution.

thanks. all fixed. While happy you got it fixed, it should be noted forums like this one are places to learn and to share what we have learned so others might benefit from what we have learned. Simply saying "all fixed" helps no one else learn from your experiences. So how about sharing what you le...

Re: Can't launch MWP from system tray

My next suggestion would be try a .NET Repair, then reboot.
FYI - Just thought I would mention that Tuesday Microsoft pushed out a Windows Update (KB4480056) that was a "Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.7.2".

FTR, MWP on my systems is working fine after that update.

Re: Token does not match the email address

No. It is not a secret update. In fact, it is easily found from this page and has been since last May. If you follow the link then read the first few lines, it explains the program may report you are already up to date, and how to get around that.

Re: Token does not match the email address

Top secret update? Ummm, not hardly.

It would seem you just had a momentary quirk.
