Why Use Choicemail?


Because it works.

Spam now accounts for about two-thirds of all email. It costs most email users at least 15 minutes a day. Research shows that spam costs companies $400-800 per mailbox every year. And these costs are growing.

Permission-based email management is the only thing that actually solves, or ever will solve, the spam problem. (To learn more, read our whitepaper.) It is 100% effective, and ChoiceMail makes it available to you now.

With ChoiceMail, you will never get another piece of unwanted email because a message can reach your inbox in one of only four ways:

  • It is from someone on your whitelist
  • It is from a new sender whose registration request you accepted
  • It matches a permission rule you created
  • It is from a domain that is on your accepted domain list.
  • You approved it manually

In short, if an email is in your box, it’s because you want it there. ChoiceMail transfers the burden of dealing with email messages from people you don't know back to where they belong– the senders. Learn more and get your FREE trial for home or business!

Release Notes - these notes describe changes that apply to ChoiceMail One v4.203

New Features

Full Windows Vista compatibility - ChoiceMail One v4.2 is now fully Vista compatible. Main components run as a service in the background and allow several users to use ChoiceMail (if license allows it).

Search/Filter functionality extended - Many users asked for the ability to sort unknown senders by recipient or search through by words present in the subject body. ChoiceMail v4.2 includes support for both.

Leave mail on server - It is now possible to leave mail on your ISP server for certain amount of time. This feature should only be used with ONE ChoiceMail installation or you may end up sending duplicate challenge messages as well as creating inconsistencies in your mailbox.

Support for Windows Mail - ChoiceMail One v4.2 can now recognize Windows Mail accounts and automatically configure them to be used with ChoiceMail.

Runs in background - ChoiceMail One v4.2 is comprised of two components now. The main processing component (CMServer.exe) will run in the background even if the ChoiceMail window is closed or users are logged off. This ensures timely identity verification processing for all users as well as lower memory usage.

Multi User Support - If license allows it - ChoiceMail can now support multiple users on a single computer. Users will have separate settings and be able to define their email addresses separately.


Better SMTP handling - It is not mandatory to change your outgoing (SMTP) server settings in your email application for Choice Mail's pre-approval feature to work. The new setup wizard will keep your original settings. This solves the problem where messages from different accounts must be sent using different outgoing servers or settings.

New look and feel - New user interface. Hopefully we managed to give ChoiceMail pleasing look as well as more functional interface.

Help system - New, searchable help system is much easier to use and find relevant information.

General operation - ChoiceMail's general operation has been improved and optimized.

WebMail Gateway - For users of ChoiceMail 3.x - please note that webmail gateway that was included in some previous versions of ChoiceMail is no longer supporter or distributed by DigiPortal Software. Alternative options are availabe though. Some are described in a knowledge base article please click here to read the article.

Bug Fixes

Email processing - Fixed a problem where combination of certain messages and permission rules could result in incorrect rules and mailbox processing.

Updater on Vista issue - Fixed a problem where our updater component continually triggered Windows Vista security verifications.

Registration popup disappears - Fixed a problem where in some cases registration popup window would disappear immediately after the popup.

Reject Sender with Explanation feature - This feature was not working in some instances. Fixed in this release.

Coach.exe taking 100% CPU - this was a rare problem on some systems. Coach.exe is not used in this version of ChoiceMail which fixes the issue.
