The Bottom Line
It's really a pity slimail cannot clean existing email accounts. You get a new address instead, which forwards to your current one.
- slimail cleans forwards fabulously of unnecessary headers, footers, subject modifiers and more
- You can block big attachments, and slimail filters duplicates and loopbacks, too
- Original messages and blocked emails can be restored easily
- slimail cannot clean your existing email account; you get a new address instead
- Even more cleanup work, say to remove email addresses, could be done
- slimail cleans up emails forwarded to you.
- Superfluous paragraphs, footers and headers are removed, and slimail cleans subjects (of, say, "Fwd"), too.
- In the subject, slimail can indicate the type of message, its size or other people's rating instead.
- Comparing the core message of forwards, slimail can filter out duplicates and emails looped back to you.
- You can see what other slimail users think of content and rate messages yourself, too.
- slimail can block messages with certain keywords or large attachments.
- All original, uncleaned as well as blocked emails are kept for two weeks and can be restored easily.
- Videos in emails are stored on slimail servers and available for fast streamed viewing.
- While on an email vacation, you can have slimail hold back all fun content.
Guide Review - slimail - Fun Email Cleanup Service
You do love getting and sharing whatever makes the rounds. If only... the emails were not filled with superfluous characters; you wouldn't get them thrice; what you have just forwarded would not get forwarded back to you; emails wouldn't come as attachments to attachments; subjects did not start with "Fwd: Fwd: [Fw:]"?
slimail has answers to most of these ills. It makes your fun email experience richer by putting the messages on a diet.
Emails received at your slimail address are cleaned thoroughly, then forwarded to your main email address. slimail removes all the unnecessary headers and footers, cleans subject lines and turns embedded messages into regular, flat emails. At your slimail address, you will not get duplicates of any forwards and certainly not back what you just sent. Video attachments come as streamed content, available fast and keeping your inbox lean.
For even more control, slimail can indicate in the subject message sizes and types or block large messages altogether. You can also filter out messages containing certain keywords. These and original, uncleaned messages can be restored easily for two weeks.
Speaking of weeks: slimail has a fabulous "freeze" setting for, say, vacations. During this time all fun email will be held. To help with the deluge of jokes while you're there, slimail lets you rate messages and see the ratings of others.
For all the good things slimail does, it's a pity you cannot filter existing POP accounts easily with it. (slimail does include instructions for setting up your Gmail account for cleaning.) Of course, slimail could also do even more cleaning and, say, remove other's email addresses from the To: or Cc: headers.
