MailWasher Pro 7.12.06
Keep your inbox free of spam

MailWasher Pro is an unusual antispam tool that attempts to keep your inbox entirely free of junk.

The program includes a Check Mail option which shows you all the mail waiting for you on the server. It tries to figure out itself whether these messages are legitimate, or spam, and at first (in our experience) this isn't particularly accurate. You're able to train the program by pointing out anything it gets wrong, though, so its performance improves significantly over time.

Then, when you click the Wash Mail button, MailWasher deletes the spam and other junk, while downloading everything else to your email program.

The downside of this approach is that you need to personally scan all your incoming mails, at least initially, and if you get a lot of spam then that could be a problem.

Once you're confident in MailWasher's abilities, though, you can have it automatically delete spam, saving you a lot of time. Being able to preview a message before you download it has security advantages, as you're viewing it in plain text (malicious scripts won't be able to run). And the program has plenty of other plus points: it's easy to set up, works at the POP3 and SMTP protocol level so supports all email clients, and has lots of configuration options so you can make it work just as you like.

Version 7.12.6 changes (see changelog for more)?

- Updates recommended action in Error tab for Gmail accounts

Verdict:

Once it's trained then MailWasher Pro can become a very accurate spam filter, however the idea of manually previewing messages before you download them will be too much hassle for some

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
