I recently installed Mailwasher and it works fine with my Eudora email program. However, I also have a MSN.com email program that I use for work on the internet. Mailwasher says you can use it for MSN, but I can not figure out how to get it to work. For one it says use Pop3 settings. I can find no Pop3 settings in my MSN email account. No SMTP settings. What am I missing here? I don't use Outlook Express for my regular email. I use Eudora. How can I get MSN mail to work. Thanks for any help.

Apparently it can only work if you have a paid MSN account. It doesn't work on the free accounts. The settings are:
POP3= pop3.email.msn.com
SMPT= smtp.email.msn.com

Be nice if it *did* work on the free accounts also... I get 60 to 80 pieces of spam in every 4 to 5 days on the average, tho' I gather that some do get more than that.
I may get it & set it up with my Earthlink mail--have recently began getting spam thru it via msn & couple other places. :eek:

Ok, so then it won't work on the free version of MSN. Isn't Hotmail a free web based email that they say it will work with? They say it works with MSN and Hotmail so I assumed it would work. Thanks for the information.
