Follow these steps to upgrade your version of MailWasher :

MailWasher will automatically check for new updates and prompt you to download and install them, or you can manually update by going to Help>>Check for Updates.


Update options can be found at Settings>>General>>Updates, and allows you to set the frequency of update checking.


During the update process, MailWasher will shutdown, uninstall itself and keep your settings, then install the new version and run it.




If you have reformatted your PC, follow the steps below to reinstall your registered version of MailWasher .

Download MailWasher, double click the icon to run the installation file and follow the wizard to complete the installation. Enter your license key after pressing 'register'




If you have purchased a new PC and wish to transfer MailWasher from another computer, there are a couple of options.


1. Export your settings by going to MailWasher>>File>>Export. This will save a file with all your settings. Take this file to your new computer and import the settings via MailWasher>>File>>Import




2. Manually copy across


You'll need to copy the folders and files at Help>>User Files, over to your new computer in the same location.


The easiest way to do this is to first copy the MailWasher folders and files at Help>>User Files to a thumb drive or CD on your old computer. Then make sure you have installed MailWasher Pro on your new computer and go to Help>>User Files. This will open the new folder. Now close MailWasher (if it's still sitting in the system tray, right mouse click on the Mailwasher icon and click Exit) , then copy the existing files to the new location. Re-open MailWasher and all your settings will have been transferred.


This copying of files may take some time depending on how large the files are, so you may just want to copy all the files in this folder and ignore the sub-folders 'cache', 'logs' etc.



To create a Backup, point your backup program to the location of the folder at Help>>User Files.
