DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

10/06/03: Slow Mail Washer

Tech Support Pits:
From Bianca=== Dear Webby, My Mailwasher seems to be getting slower and slower, to the point where I sometimes worry that it is stuck. How do I fix that? Bianca Dear Bianca Most likely you have accumulated a HUGE blacklist. Since the spammers just keep forging new addresses, the blacklist has become pretty well useless, except for some very persistent spammers. Bring up the Filters Side Bar (CTRL F7) Options Checkmark "Expire unused email addresss from blacklistlist Set the number of days to 2 to prune the blacklist, then in a few days move it up to 5. In two days your Mailwasher will be nice and fast again. Have FUN DearWebby
