Spam is the massive and sometimes repeated sending of unsolicited e-mails from unscrupulous people or organisations who have obtained e-mail addresses without the consent of their owners. Senders of spam are known as spammers.
Contrary to traditional anti-spams, MailPatch is not a filter. It is a tool based on an identification request sent to your contacts, that's why it is 100% effective and does not lead to false positives (legitimate e-mails wrongly marked as spam).
Yes, in your Personal Space it is possible to accept an e-mail (yours for example) without adding it in your White List. This means that you can receive your own e-mail even if you have previously added it to your Black list.
You can interrupt the protection of one or several accounts at any time . You just have to go to the General Options and Deactivate the account(s) you want to. As from then on, all your e-mails will stay in your original e-mail account without being treated by MailPatch until you Reactivate the account(s). Advice: if you receive many e-mails and/or spams, make sure you don't exceed the maximum storage limit allowed by your e-mail provider.
You are able to protect 3 e-mail addresses with MailPatch Free, and 5 with MailPatch Plus. If you would like to protect more e-mail addresses, you may simply add more addresses for 9€ per address per yer. The features of each version will not be modified or improved, with the exception of technical support which becomes available to MailPatch Free users.
MailPatch offers a storage capacity (sent and received e-mails) of 1 GB or 2 GB depending on the version chosen. You also have storage in the USB Flash drive (1 GB or 2 GB depending on the version chosen).
There is a slight delay caused by the time it takes to process your e-mails. This delay can vary from a few seconds (MailPatch Plus) up to 60 seconds (MailPatch Free). However, when you send e-mails, there won't be any delay.
We don't give out or sell our files to third parties. We guarantee the absolute privacy of the data passing through our servers. MailPatch respects the recommendations of the CNIL (the French Data Protection Authority) and abides by the LCEN (A French law on Internet privacy).
Yes, you can view all your received e-mails, including your blocked e-mails, from your Personal Space for 5 days (as long as they don't exceed 750 e-mails) or for 30 days (as long as they don't exceed 10,000 e-mails) depending on the MailPatch version being used.
