General Recycle Bin Question

Wed Sep 11, 2019 4:54 am

I have a general question regarding the Recycle Bin. I am using an older product 6.5.3 but I assume the recycle feature works in the same manner in all versions.

My question is how and where does the recycle bin store the emails? Is it using a variation of the "leave a copy of the email on the server".

How does it work?

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark

MailWasher stores the emails in a file called trash.rot135
It has basic encoding so is not directly readable and won't trigger AntiVirus programs.

When you restore a message, MailWasher grabs the message from the file and resends it as a new message. It tries to keep the original headers intact to keep the message as close to the original as possible.

Thank you for the reply. Always wondered where they were kept.

Makes sense that it would requires the SMTP info now.

Great solution. Thanks for the reply, MailWasher is an ingenious product.
