Editor: MouseTrap is the Mediator Between your e-mail program and your mailbox. No more can unsoliciated e-mail be blindly accepted by your e-mail program. Watch the amount of junk e-mail be drastically reduced in no time.
MouseTrap downloads your e-mail and checks each message to be from an authorized sender or not. Messages that are from authorized sources are made available for your e-mail program to load. Senders that are not yet authorized are sent a message automatically from MouseTrap simply asking them to reply to the message. Upon receiving the message, the sender is now authorized to send to you.
