MailWasher not automatically deleting emails

Sun Dec 15, 2019 1:52 am


I am new to the forum but have been using MailWasher for a long time. I just updated one of my PCs from Windows 7 Pro 32 bit to Windows 10 Pro 64 bit.

Now, I realize the version of Mailwasher I am using is old, but it still works great and fits my current needs. It is version 6.5.4. I am running it in compatibility mode. It has been quite a long time since I installed MailWasher and I am cannot remember which setting accomplished this:

After I download and read my email on Windows Live Mail, Mailwasher used to automatically delete those downloaded emails from MailWasher when I clicked Process Mail. However, it no longer accomplishes that task. I have to highlight all of the emails in Mailwasher and press C in order to delete the emails from MailWasher.

Question: What setting on MailWasher do I activate in order to delete these emails automatically when I press Process Mail?

Thank you for providing any assistance you can offer.

P.S. I expect to get responses stating I need to upgrade MailWasher. Thank you in advance for that particular advice. However, I would like to give modifying the current version I have first, in order to accomplish the actual task I am requesting help with.

Hi Joe

It sounds like MailWasher needs to hit a regular timed Check Mail. Instead of pressing C, if you do another Check Mail in MailWasher, do those messages then remove from view ?
