FireTrust has today revealed MailWasher 2012 Free, a new version of its popular spam filter.
The latest release will provide all the features of the full commercial MailWasher Pro edition for its first 10 days of use, but after that introduces four main restrictions.
There’s no Recycle Bin, which means you can’t browse or restore deleted emails.
Preview options are limited, so it may be more difficult to manually determine whether a particular message is spam.
Technical support is unsurprisingly reserved for paying customers.
And, probably most crucially, the program will be limited to checking 1 email address only, perhaps a deal-breaker for many people.
If you can live with the final restriction, though, MailWasher 2012 Free could serve you very well: it’s easy to set up (the program imported all our Outlook contacts and email account details automatically), simple to use, and the Bayesian filters deliver a high level of accuracy, all helping to keep your Inbox pleasingly clear of junk.
