Imagine the expression on their faces when they ask for my eMail address and I give 'em: JacquesStrapp@ gmail dot com
I process all my eMail on the Windows side because I have been using MailWasher for years. It is a PRE-processor. It gives a peek at the server and allows for easy deleting BEFORE any eMail hits my actual eMail client (T'bird). It can also preview plain-text in eMail notes - it does not decode any HTML or programming or video (meaning you can't catch a virus using this product). It also has really good filtering for automatic cleaning of unwanted eMail. It's from a company named Firetrust. I started using this when it was first released (in the late 90's I think). The same developer (Nick Bolton) is still with the company.
