If I recall, with POP and GMail you need to tell GMail not to move spam messages into the Spam folder, that way they'll display in your Inbox, which is what MailWasher checks.
Details on how to do that can be seen here http://webapps.stackexchange.com/questi ... completely

Thanks

It's quite an old post — you might need to use just a little bit of improvisation. ;)

Well, MWP does rid of the spam from the Gmail Trash folder, too — if you tell it to.
