The following link claims that the Clearmymail.com domain name is listed for sale by Sedo (owned by United Internet AG, who also own 1&1 – through which the domain is registered).
Following more intermittent outages last week, in which incoming emails were lost altogether, what alternatives are there to Clearmymail? I can find none that filter individual POP3 emails the same way. Unfortunately, every other anti-spam firm that I know of, requires changes to the domain's MX (Mail Exchange) records so the entire email feed is directed to them at root DNS level. This puts your email service entirely in their hands. Consequently they are mainly aimed not at consumers but businesses instead, and enterprise-level solutions may charge £120+ a year. GFI.com, for example, starts at £180 + VAT per year for a minimum of 10 mailboxes.
For now, as a temporary if retrograde solution I am using Mailwasher, free software to filter my emails on my PC before they reach my main email program. Enter your POP3 mailbox details into Mailwasher to let it do its job. It flags up some spam automatically and can build up whitelists and blacklists, and also bounce dodgy mails back from whence they came (aka “back scatter”). Junk mail is cleared out which allows your main mail program to collect what's left. Using Mailwasher is onerous but it works extremely well, though I can think of far better ways to spend my time and this is of little use if I want to check raw mail on my phone or tablet instead.
Without paying $$$ lots for a corporate service one solution is to switch to eg Microsoft's Outlook.com email and move it online. I feel Outlook is easier to get along with than over-elaborate Gmail. Only my opinion. Consider migrating your address book to Outlook.com and get an Outlook address, and just manage the transition with your contacts over several months. Many PC-based email programs can actually handle Gmail and Outlook POP3 mail anyway, even my ancient old Eudora program will. You also get free online web storage.
I will also experiment with some mail-forwarding ideas, to see how to filter the plague of spam from my regular emails.
A routine check of my recent posts shows DomainTools had a redesign and the domain is no longer highlighted this way as being for sale.
