With PP MailCheck you can easily handle the mails on a POP3 server, it allows you to preview the mails from the
server and direct delete those you don't want to download by your default Mail Client

At the same time you can return mail. If someone sends you a mail, and you are not sure about it, just replay the mail,
MailCheck can, if you want it to, insert details about the mail you got.

You can also send simple mail with it.

PP MailCheck has several options to inform you about new mails. You can get a cool popup, a balloon hint from tray
bar or a sound! The cool popup does not only tell you that you got mail, but also who sent the mail and the subject of
the mail

PP MailCheck has a easy to use Spam filter, to which you can add a email. When viewing mails it can also test if the
syntax of the address is correct.

If you want to check your mail on another computer, then just take MailCheck with you. MailCheck can copy itself to
floppy disk, and then you can start it from floppy disk on another computer.

So now you can get rid of these mails you don't want to download with your normal email program, and maybe this
program can help you to a virus free computer...

Minimum requirements:

Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP.

Internet explorer 5 or higher

You can even reply from this window, save the attachment, or delete the message. You can filter your messages, and
avoid those annoying spam e-mails or huge attachments filling your mailbox. But EzPop is much more than an e-mail
checker! Between checks, EzPop can bring you news in a convenient and unobstrusive way, with a scrolling text in
the status display.

POP3 Mail Remover
I got tired of the fact that if someone send me a big e-mail, I would have to entirely download it to get rid off it. My e-mail
client gave me Timeout errors and when I checked my mail the next day the same big e-mail needed to be
downloaded first.

So I wrote POP3 Mail Remover. It allowes one to log onto any POP3 mail server (with the proper username and
password) and view the new e-mails. It shows the sender, title and size and has the capability of deleting messages.

Written in Delphi and works under any Windows version (including XP).



Sam Spade v1.14
The fight against spammers can sometimes seem a losing battle, but every now and then there
are tools to give you a glimmer of hope. Sam Spade is a network-query tool that can help you
locate bulk mailers and maybe even make them answer for their transgressions.

Many server-finding tools, such as nslookup, whois, and traceroute, have been previously
available, but only from a command line. Sam Spade lets you use these tools from a graphical
interface, and information found with one tool can be queried using another. Its SMTP Verify
tool helps you check on the validity of an e-mail address, which is good for finding out if
mail is being sent from that address or forwarded from another address to cover the spammer's

Another helpful feature sends HTTP packets to your ISP's Web server every minute or so, to
keep a dial-up link active. There is also an included Web browser. An query will
identify the e-mail addresses listed at a database maintained by



This program is freeware .
Instead of making filters in e-mail programs, use AntiSPAM. Why?
Because with filters you must first download messages and then filter
them. With AntiSPAM you delete undesirable messages from your server
before you download, thus saving you time and money. Before you use
an e-mail program like Outlook Express, Netscape Mail, Eudora, etc.,
start AntiSPAM. You will then avoid downloading stupid advertisements.
It's also possible to set up the program to start every time you start
Windows and automatically delete undesirable messages when you connect
to the Internet.

How Antispam works.

AntiSPAM deletes (from your POP3 server) all messages that are
received from e-mail addresses or domains specified in the attached
file spamers.txt. (Spamers.txt includes a few spammers addresses to
get you started.) You can manage spamers.txt either with Notepad or
directly with AntiSPAM. You can add words in spamers.txt (e.g., sale,
market, new, cheap, inexpensive, make money, or something that
spammers use in the subject of their messages), to delete messages
containing these words in the subject.
If you don't want to receive messages from certain persons, add their
e-mail addresses to your list--their messages will automatically be
deleted from your POP3 server. You won't even know they were trying
to bother you again!


With AvirMail you can preview all incoming E-Mails while they are
still on the Server and before you download to your computer.
With AvirMail you can manage all E-Mails. This means you can read
each E-Mail, print it, filter it in the way you want to, immediately
answer it and even delete it - all of this while it is still on the
Server and before it is downloaded into your computer.
You can download all acceptable E-Mails to your hard disk using your
favorite Mail Client - as usual!
With AvirMail you get a great front-end for the incoming Mail


What is Magic Mail Monitor?
Magic Mail Monitor (MMM) is a POP3 mail monitor with multiple accounts support. It sits silently in your system tray,
and notifies you about new messages in one of your mailboxes. Then you can preview messages and delete
unwanted mail in order to avoid spam and viruses.

Well i run mailwasher as a filtering program so basically you get the subject and the text (at leats first 20 lines) of the mail so i tend to bounce/ delete any mails from spam or addresses i don't know which haven't made a believable/valid statement in the 1st 20 lines

Then from mailwasher you can then launch your "proper" mail program in my case outlook, with norton antivrus running

so far not had a problem with either

the mailwasher bit i guess isn't fool proof (neither is norton av for that matter) because you could always get email virus from someone you know and trust if the virus has penetrated their account
