Mailwasher Kaput?

Bummer. I’ve used Mailwasher for years to preview my email. It’s been a great little utility that did what it advertised, well, at an affordable price. But it’s been crashing like crazy of late. I can’t pin it down to the service that seems to always hang it up (my MSN account) or the OS (it’s been running XP for ages) or the application itself.

Of course I suspect the service. I’ve been logging the errors (I hope) the past week so  that I can send the log to the folks at Mailwasher in hopes that they can clue me in. I don’t want to change utilities. If I’m anything I’m fiercely loyal to companies (and friends) who do well by me. (I won’t consider a tire related job by anyone but Discount Tire.)

Rats. I so do NOT want to have to use Outlook as my first line of *defense*. For example, who in god’s name thought it was a good idea to force you to select and mark individual emails as junk? Any idea why they thought it would be dangerous to mark several at one time but that it was okey-dokey to allow a permanent delete (Shift-Del) on multiple emails with a prompt with “Yes” as the default? Give me an effin’ break.

Oh, woe is me.
