Fight Spam With WINE

No one likes to see spam (unsolicited advertising and scams) in their email inbox.  The problem is that automated computer Spam filtering software can often delete important legitimate messages.  The solution for those receiving email through their ISP (Internet Service Provider) via a POP3 account is to manually eliminate unwanted email before you download it to your computer.

Email Remover 2.4 is a free solution for any computer user.  Linux users especially will find this handy program runs very well under WINE.  There is nothing to install.  Simply download the file and extract the contents to a folder in your Home directory.
