    Thanks for the reply. I have mailwasher and have used it. The problem with mailwasher
    is when you get spam,, it bounces it ( sending an email back saying not deliverable )
    well I have had my internet provider block my email a few times because they thought
    I was spamming. I am pretty sure its from all the emails getting sent from the mailwasher
    program. so I was hoping there was a different program out there that works differently.

    Wow if your ISP is doing that then you most get a whole lot of spam.
    So getting another program and doing the same thing will not work because your ISP does not care what your using to bounce the email.
    You could just delete the email from the server.
    Or if you got lots of spam that never stops then maybe you should start another email account with a new user name and be sure to have a name that is harder to guess so that it is not spam that can be sent to any ISP because every ISP has a Jane, Joe etc.
    Get one like kare$-bear25 and never use it any place else and never post it in a forum or chat.
