Re: Spam still gets through

I still get a large amount of spam showing up in MW. This has been the case since I downloaded MW a few years ago. I'm not bothered by this as I simply wash it away, and it doesn't appear in Thunderbird when that program opens. My concern has always been the spam turning up in the Thunderbird spam f...

The three spam emails in my spam folder have vanished since my last message this morning. I respond as quickly as I can.

Re: Spam still gets through

I have followed your advice and since your last message three spam emails have got through. I will keep an eye out to see if I get any more.

Re: Spam still gets through

I have downloaded Mailwasher version 7.9 as you suggested. You say above that I should change my server settings from POP3 to IMAP, but tthe server settings in both Mailwasher and Thunderbird are already IMAP. I presume that the setting in Optus are also IMAP as that is where Thunderbird got its inf...

Re: Spam still gets through

I think I understand now, you are not talking about Thunderbird. My email service is provided by my ISP, namely Optus (Optusnet).

Re: Spam still gets through

The details you have asked for, I assume, relate to whether I am using IMAP or POP3 for my Thunderbird and Mailwasher accounts. My main account in Thunderbird (the one containing spam) uses IMAP whilst my secondary account uses POP3. Mailwasher uses IMAP. Mozilla, as I have said, tells me that while...

Re: Spam still gets through

Thanks for your patience. Mozilla Support tells me that it is not possible to convert IMAP to POP3. I think that I will just have to resign myself to the existence of the Spam folder in Thunderbird. I am still surprised that so much spam escapes Mailwasher's notice.

Re: Spam still gets through

I use Thunderbird. I am using IMAP on Mailwasher (though I didn't select it) but I am not sure about Thunderbird as I have been unable to find out so far.

Re: Spam still gets through

The answer given above refers to Gmail, I use Mozilla Thunderbird so it doesn't help.

Spam still gets through

i have been using Mailwasher Free for some time now and find it very useful. I use Mozilla Thunderbird and have found that over the last few months a folder Spam has appeared which inevitably contains large amounts of spam which have not shown up in Mailwasher. I always open Mailwasher before Thunde...
