    I bought mailwasher pro with zonealarm pro sometime ago. Mailwasher pro was i think version 3.3 at the time.

    I have the same beta installed as you have before i installed V4.

    It still says registered to me, it also allows me to check mail from 20 accounts I have in it.

    So you can only try installing v4 when it finishes installation it says would you like to try it now, click yes.

    Must be a free upgrade I spose. I am sure when Nick first created this at his site he said lifetime of free upgrades.

    Dunno if he changed policy.
