crypto folder files

Postby Mark VIII LSC Wed Nov 28, 2018 5:56 pm

In my C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Firetrust\MailWasher\cache\crypto folder, I have 2,180 files. I have a few questions about this...

1) What is the purpose of these files?
2) Can they be Zipped to save disk space (except for the most recent one)?
3) What function within MW creates these files?

Many thanks for any help!

0001 File - Is a Recycled or Cached Message
0002 File - Is extra message information for quick access
0004 File - Is extra information stored on a message when deleted
0005 File - I've forgotten what these are
0010 File - Are messages trained as Spam
0011 File - Are messages trained as Good


MailWasher though does keep it's own maintenance for these files, I would strongly discourage any kind of direct interaction.

Instead you can look at :

Reduce # of days to store delete mail : Settings >> Recycle Bin >> Settings.
Disable Account Caching : Settings >> Accounts >> Incoming >> uncheck Store cached email
