Not against xtra at all for their latest release in antivirus protection but I'm concerned that since that has been released, spam mail has increased in my xtra account..i've never had spam till after tuesday night, i now get 3-4 a day..its not many...does anyone else get this too

I have been using Mailwasher - a free programme now for about a month and it is more than excellent. It previews all your email at the server and you have the option of bouncing it before it hits your computer. The thing is the sender thinks he has an invalid address. Since I have been using it I have cut spam by about 95%. And its a kiwi that invented it.. www.mailwasher.net

Does Mail Washer improve with time?. I am now getting over double the spam that I got before installing MailWasher.

Have bounced back hundreds, but they still keep coming, am wondering if it will settle down after a while, as have only had it for a week.

Anyone know of a better system?

Maybe xtra sold the email addresses to pay for the new service. ;-)

Read our FAQ16 ... see the button at the top right hand corner of the page.
